School's Out! And so is Rachel, with trouble following close on her barefooted heels! Nine-year-old Rachel Yoder is a delightfully high-spirited Amish girl who finds plenty of trouble amid the rolling hills of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. When she's not getting locked in a root cellar, bringing frogs to church, or taking wild buggy rides, she's setting fireflies free and trying out new skateboards in all the wrong places.
Back to School
Rachel's back in school in Lancaster County! And that's where trouble finds her once again! Except this time, trouble is spelled O-R-L-I-E. That's the name of the new boy-the freckle-faced kid with a nasty cowlick-who has an ornery attitude when it comes to Rachel. From mixed-up school lunches to playground high jinks, these two Amish kids are off on the wrong bare foot. Will nine-year-old Rachel be able to survive Orlie's constant teasing? Can anything good come from this mayhem and madness?
Out of Control
Ten-year-old Rachel is driving her Amish friends and family "buggy" with her lack of patience. Her attempts to control every situation bring her trouble at every turn-from sledding into a creek to scorching a yummy shoo-fly pie, to flunking a test in school, to being dragged facedown in the snow. Can Grandpa's wise words regarding patience get through to Rachel? What will it take to teach Rachel that there are some things she just can't control?
Spring has sprung! And ten-year-old Rachel Yoder is filled with the hope of good things to come. But then she learns that her best friend is moving away. What will she do without her? When a new girl named Audra shows up at the Amish schoolhouse, Rachel soon finds herself with a stinky sandwich, a mud-spattered dress, a sore nose, and a rotten attitude. If Rachel doesn't find a way to forgive others, she'll be in danger of losing more than one friend. Is there any way Rachel can make a new beginning?
