A Simple Song

A Simple Song is a cute book for teenagers written by Melody Carlson. Katrina Yoder is a young Amish girl who has an interest in singing. She takes it upon herself to enter a singing competition to earn money for an expensive surgery her father must have. Katrina’s family does not approve of her singing, and they definitely would not allow her to be involved in a singing competition for the whole world to see.

In light of all the singing competition shows that are on television right now, I really enjoyed this book and felt like it was very relevant. It was a relatively easy read, and it was an interesting concept of seeing how a young Amish girl would behave in the “English” world. Also, the character of Katrina was very likeable, and it was great to see her go after her dream. As with all the other Melody Carlson books I have read, this book was very entertaining and would be great to share with other friends to read.
