To top that off, her Mom announces they are headed to the Amish in Ohio. Little did she ever expect to find out she has Amish Grandparents! Never did she think that her mother would take them there, or that her Mother has had living parents this entire time! It is hard, and she doesn't fit in, so she is working extremely hard to please these Grandparents she has never met in the last 16 years of her life.
But then again, there is Ezra. He stole her heart very quickly. He might be enough motivation to become Amish, though that might not be why you are suppose to convert. Deeper yet is the issue that if her Mother is to live, Shannon has to make some hard grown up decisions that will change her life forever. Shannon is indeed, "coming of age", but not in the way that most children do.
Melody Carlson did a wonderful job, yet again.
