Sixteen year old Eliza Miller has never made a phone call,
never tried on a pair of jeans, never sat in a darkened theater waiting for a
movie to start. She’s never even talked to someone her age who isn’t Amish.
When she leaves her close-knit family to spend the summer
as a nanny in suburban Chicago, a part of her can’t wait to leave behind
everything she knows. She can’t imagine the secrets she will uncover, the
friends she will make, the surprises and temptations of a way of life so
different from her own.
Every minute Eliza spends with her new friend Josh feels as
good as listening to music for the first time, and she wonders whether there
might be a place for her in his world. But as summer wanes, she misses the
people she has left behind, and the Plain life she once took for granted. Eliza
will have to decide for herself where she belongs. Whichever choice she makes,
she knows she will lose someone she loves.
