"A World Away" was a lovely story of Eliza, a sixteen-year-old Amish girl who is allowed to venture into the modern world for her rumspringa. Although, basically a romance with a predictable ending, I did like following Eliza as she experienced new things for the first time - jeans, music, movies, dancing, mobile phones, tvs, computers, etc. During her time in this new world, Eliza had to make some tough decisions and, while I respected her choice, I wish she had made a different one.

I thoroughly enjoyed the insights into the Amish culture and just wish it was more in-depth. Even though I liked Eliza, my favourite character was her Aunt Bec. As a teenager, she made the decision to turn her back on the Amish community and stay in modern society. Despite being shunned by her family, she made a successful life for herself and found a man who loved her. In fact, I would love Nancy Grossman to write Rebecca's story. I think it would be more intense than "A World Away", as Bec was treated poorly by those she knew and loved.

Filled with hellos and goodbyes, "A World Away" was a sweet, coming-of-age read.

I got caught up in this story from the very beginning. The dialogue and descriptions were a bit simplistic, but overall this was a great story.

Eliza Miller is Amish, and being part of the Amish world is all she’s ever known. Now that she’s turned 16, she wants to explore the life of the English (non Amish) during her “rumspringa.” During “rumspringa” teens her age are allowed to run a bit wild, with the hope that once they’ve sown their wild oats they’ll return to the ways of the Amish forever.
