How could I not read this book…seriously, an Amish horror story, complete with talks about Rumspringa?!? This is the first book in a planned series with the next one coming out in September (already have the order placed!) I loved the premise and the setting…cornstalks just lend themselves to creepy (remember the movie “Children of the Corn” or “Signs”…shudder…)

Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers can get a taste of the real world. But the real world comes to her in this dystopian tale with a philosophical bent. Rumors of massive unrest on the “Outside” abound. Something murderous is out there. Amish elders make a rule: No one goes outside, and no outsiders come in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man, she can’t leave him to die. She smuggles him into her family’s barn—at what cost to her community? The suspense of this vividly told, truly horrific thriller will keep the pages turning.
