A Summer Secret

Sharing a house with six high-spirited brothers isn't easy for soon-to-be eighth-grader Mary Beth Mullet. Looking for some much-needed peace and quiet, she escapes to a neighbor's abandoned barn---but finds more than she bargained for. Someone is living there---somebody who needs help. What should Mary Beth do?

I have read a lot of Amish books for Adults. This one is the first one I have read that is for teens. It was a GREAT book by Kathleen Fuller. She is one of the best Amish writers around. Mary Beth is so frustrated having all brothers around her, that she finds a secret hiding place which she thought was only hers, until she notices things go missing. Then, she discovers that she is not alone. When she discovers who is invading her space, she becomes a very caring person. I believe anyone from age 10 and up would enjoy it. I loved it.
