Review: What's that, a flying red scooter? Probably M.K. from the wonderful new book The Lesson. It is by Susanne Woods Fisher and is the third book in the Stony Ridge Seasons series.
M.K. is an Amish girl who wants to see the world and get away from the Amish lifestyle. One day, she accidentally ran over the teacher to the local school with her scooter and has to take her place. She has no idea how to teach and doesn't even try. Chris is a young man coming to Stony Ridge with his younger sister Jenny to have a better life. Their caretaker, Old Debra, passed away, his dad left him when he was young and his mom is in rehab again. He moved to his Grandfather's old house, which needs a lot of work. He needs to stay quiet for only a few more months, then the house will be his and he will be 21. What happens next? You'll have to find out!
I really liked the book, The Lesson. It has adventure, romance, and mystery that will keep you wanting more! The storyline goes back and forth between Chris and M.K.'s story and it adds a nice touch to it. It is 304 pages and is challenging for the number of pages. It is good for kids ages 10 and up. I would say that only girls would like it because there is romance, the main character is a girl, and most boys don't like stories about girls. If you like Little House on the Prairie and Amish books, you will like The Stony Ridge series. There is another book coming soon and there are two other books before this one. The author also has more books in another Amish series. There are no pictures so you will have to process the story in your head. All in all, The Lesson is a read that will make you wanting more. I hope you love the book as much as I did. Enjoy!
