A good fun story with an uplifting, but not preachy, message. ( )

I couldn't put this book down. I enjoyed the idea of a swap by look-a-likes a la "Prince and the Pauper," "The Parent Trap," and mentioned in the book "The Country Mouse and the Town Mouse"--though I don't know that story too well- was what drew me to the book. Though shelved as a Young Adult book, it could be read by anyone who likes Amish fiction. (Many of the adult fiction books have stories of kids of Rumspringa age that might appeal to the teens as well). I liked how both girls grew in their faith, but the book wasn't preachy. ( )

NCLA Review - It’s her senior year, spring break and everyone wants Madison Van Buren’s attention. The problem is, she doesn’t want any part of it. She just wants to chill out and stop being told what’s best for her. She decides to take a drive to clear her head. When she stops for lunch and accidentally bumps into Anna Fisher, she is shocked by the resemblance. Madison has a brain storm that they could switch lives for the week. Anna isn’t sure of the idea because she is Amish and Madison is rich. But the deal is made because Anna also has a reason to go to New York. Her boyfriend, Jacob, who left the Order, is living there and maybe she could find him. Can Madison be the simple Amish girl and Anna the rich stylish girl Madison is? It was very interesting how they pulled it off, how the people who helped them and what they learned about themselves, life and God. I really enjoyed this book. Rating: 4 —NP ( )

I was really excited to receive this book for review---I love Amish stories and I the thought of an Amish & “Englisher” girl trading places sounding fascinating. So I had high expectations when I sat down to read Double Take.

It’s understandable that an “Englisher” girl would want to leave the hustle & bustle of her high-profile, fancy life in New York City provided by her wealthy parents. But going Amish? Hmmm…..interesting choice! It’s also plausible that a young, Amish girl would want to get out & see the world past her community. But making a snap decision to trade lives with someone you don’t know or trust? Even more of an interesting choice.

It’s amazing to me that a young lady from NYC has absolutely nThato ability in the homemaking arena—it’s totally different than the life I know but maybe it’s true. Who doesn’t know how to make eggs? Yes, the stove is different but….. As for an Amish girl to go into the big city, I can see how intimidating that can be!! However it was fun reading about each of their experiences—it’s something we would never think of.

The biggest part of the book, in my opinion, was seeing how the girls changed. For Madison, she went from a spoiled, self-centered material girl to a praying, more compassionate and honest young lady. Amish Anna realized there is more to true love than a romantic vision and that life doesn’t always come out the way you want it to. They both came through the switch more kind-hearted and considerate toward others along with getting more self-esteem for themselves.

There wasn’t a lot of background on the Amish lifestyle so if this is your first Amish book, it could be confusing. Beside the fact that Amish are fairly timid, it’s hard to believe that an Amish girl would do what Anna did. But then, this is fiction! The story is a quick and easy read with a few chuckles and some hard-to-believe situations but all in all, I’d give it a 3 out of 5 stars just because I could lay by the pool & have some mindless reading fun.

Spring break means happiness, fun, and relaxation. But not for Madison Van Buren and Anna Fisher. Pressures from her family and friends leave Madison feeling attacked and stressed. Anna just wants to escape a monotonous life of chores and children. When the two girls meet, they realize they could easily pass for sisters and they have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to temporarily swap places. Anna will go to New York to experience life outside of the Amish community and maybe even find her old boyfriend. Madison will escape some pressure and stress by traveling to another Amish community to help Anna's pregnant aunt with chores and children. The quickly-hatched plan leads Madison and Anna on two incredible journeys to understanding another's point-of-view. Neither of them will be the same.

I expected Double Take by Melody Carlson to be a modern-day version of The Parent Trap without the part about getting the parents together. To some degree it was the classic swapping-places chick lit. However, I was pleased by the depth and originality that Carlson added by intergrating the Amish beliefs/practices and taking the characters on a spiritual journey. I would love, love, love to read a sequel. The ending was satisfying, yet there were a few things left open that could definitely be sequel-material.

Though targeted to young adults, I recommend this book to both young adults and adults who love chick lit or Amish fiction.
