Trading Secrets by Melody Carlson

About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
The truth may set you free - but it might also land you in some uncomfortably hot water.

Over the years, Micah Knight has exchanged many letters – and many secrets – with her longtime Amish pen pal, Zach. But Micah's kept quiet on the biggest secret of all – the fact that despite her name, she's a girl.

Now Micah finally has the chance to meet her pen pal face-to-face. She wants nothing more than to experience life on Zach's Amish farm, but she's more than a little anxious. Will he be angry at her for deceiving him all these years? And will she risk losing his friendship to find something more?

When I come across any book centering on pen pals, it immediately has my attention. I love the idea of writing letters, so those types of plots always fascinate me – and Melody Carlson’s Trading Secrets is no exception. Though not too many actual letters are involved within the story, it does explore the antics of two long-term pen pals meeting each other in person. It was an entertaining and fun read with spiritual themes of faith, uncertainty and the future, and I especially liked seeing how the different cultures clashed and connected. I think anyone looking for a sweet, clean YA read will enjoy Carlson’s Trading Secrets. It’s a delight.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Trading Secrets and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
