Review of Double Take
I really enjoyed the plot of this book. Not only does it teach a lesson about being happy with the life God has given you, but as the girls impersonate each other, they learn a lot about the positive things along with the negative things about another life. I'm not a huge fan of Amish books, so I was glad that this book was a nice blend of both average American culture and the Amish culture.
My only slight issue was that the girls seemed to adapt a little to easily to the other culture- they still struggled, but some of the occurrences were predictable or the characters seemed suddenly forced to be a certain way.
All in all, I rate this book four out of four stars. Recommended to teen girls!
