Growing Up Amish: A Memoir

Growing Up Amish: A Memoir - Ira Wagler I have been reading a lot of Amish stories here lately as it is like a different world for me. I was fascinated with Ira’s account of his 10 year struggle with his life as being Amish. Through Ira’s eyes I got to see more of what they believe in, how things work and how it is common for people who are Amish to struggle with the beliefs.

I was taken in from the first page I wanted to know how it really is on the inside. Ira shows us how hard it is and heart wrenching to want to stay with the people he loves, but yet wants the freedom as well.

This book is a real eye opener in a good way. The Amish are human just like us and do make mistakes.

This would be a great book for any teenager struggling to find out who they are and their own relationships. I know I am saving this book for my own boys to read.

I received this book from Tydale Publishing Blogger Review Program and I was not require to write a positive review these are my own opinions.
