It's hard enough being on the outside of a normal group of people, but take a girl in her sophomore year, make her old order Mennonite, and put her in a new school - a secular school when all she's known is the Mennonite school in her community. Katy wants to fit in, but she struggles with what she's grown up learning, what is right, and wanting to fit in.
Katy's struggles with being the new girl make this for an interesting read. She not only has problems with her new school, but now doesn't completely fit in with her community that she grew up in. Katy struggles with trying to find her place and ends up making some choices that not only make some people angry, but gets her into trouble.
This is a great read for teens through adults. It gives great insight to being different and wanted to be accepted. Highly recommended!!
