I really enjoyed this book. I found I understood his struggle and ached along with him. I didn't know how it would end and I was pleasantly surprised with the ending. Thanks to Ira for sharing his story.
OK, but it's really teen angst and breaking away from parents' lifestyle. It's complicated by the Amish background, but it doesn't give much insight into the Amish culture.
rather disappointing. I thought this book would provide more insight into the Amish community. Instead it was more of one mans struggle to accept the Amish lifestyle. Of which..hardly any is mentioned!
Redundancy, thy name is Ira Wagler!
Never having read very much about Amish life, I'm enjoying this first-person narrative about growing up in the culture.
Not enough cultural info to be any different than any other teen ANGST story
I thought a memoir by an actual Amish person would be even more enlightening into what it is like to grow up so separated from mainstream society,but with the exception of very few instances such as the mention of the bowl haircuts and the boys barn-door flap in the front of their homemade pants(no zippers allowed),there really wasn't any more here and even less than I have read in other books on the Amish!
Largely disappointing for that reason.
