  • Rumspringa is a period in an amish teenagers life where all the rules they were brought up believing are allowed to be broken, it is a period of experimentation before they commit to the Amish church. When researching I had a tough time not comparing an Amish teenage experience to my own. I spent a good portion of time comparing and contrasting the two cultures. I realized that I needed to bring these two very different American teenagers together. Through this book I want Amish and English teenagers to be able to become successful adults while learning about their English or Amish counterpart.
