Amish Guys Don’t Call

Reviewed by Melanie on June 13, 2017


I really want to make sure that I don’t spoil any parts of the book, so I’ll do my best to be a bit vague.

The book is about Same, who has been in trouble in the past, but with a new city is trying to turn over a new leaf. While trying to get into the “in crowd” she learns a lot about herself, her friends, and the other cultures around her.

Sam, as a character is a great one. While some of her actions lead to issues, she works hard to not only understand her different relationships better, but also tries to be a better person and help those around her become better versions of themselves as well.

The story is well written with a few plot twists I wasn’t expecting. The only reason I didn’t give it five moose tracks is from a couple of plot jumps and fall backs. In one part, she’s having lunch and it states she has her food and is picking out the tomatoes. In the next chapter, same lunch, it says she’s gets back to the table as the food is being delivered.

Overall, I highly recommend Amish Guys Don’t Call. It’s a fast read, and a cute story that hits on some major themes for teenagers. From trying to fit in, to fighting to stand out, I feel like most readers will identify with the elements of the story, pulling them further into the book.

Samantha is already facing scrutiny and anxiety at the start of her junior year, as she's finally been accepted into the popular girls' clique called "The Sherpas." But when she realizes that her new boyfriend Zach was raised Amish, Sam must tackle a whole new set of challenges! Zach has chosen not to end his Rumspringa, instigating a potential shunning from his family. Not only that, but Sam's new friends can't miss this opportunity to tease and torment her.

Sam has never really come to terms with her parents' divorce, so when her world crashes down on her in the form of cyberbullying and Zach's apparent return to the Amish community, she reverts to old, illegal habits. Does Sam even want friends like these? And, will her culture-crossed love with Zach find a way?
