"Samantha Stonesong is one of the most appealing, hilarious, whip smart narrators I've encountered in ages--her voice vibrates right off the page (and her last name feels appropriate--Debby Dodds writes with such energy and wit, she could even make a stone sing). Amish Guys Don't Call is a gift--fresh, funny, moving, unforgettable."

- Gayle Brandeis, author of The Book of Dead Birds and My Life with the Lincolns

"In Amish Guys Don't Call, author Debby Dodds gives us a young high school girl we can all root for. Estranged from her father and living with her narcissistic mother, shy, bright Samantha Stonesong is trying desperately to fit into the social scene at a new high school. Her efforts come unraveled when she falls for an Amish guy and becomes the victim of vicious cyber bullying. An old coping urge to shoplift re-emerges, which only gets her deeper into trouble. In a story filled with surprises, emotional ups and downs, and humour, Dodds deftly paints a portrait of a young girl whose honesty, courage, and intelligence win the day. Highly recommended."

-Warren C. Easley, author of the Cal Claxton Oregon Mysteries

"Amish Boys Don't Call, is as compelling and fascinating as a first kiss. It's Romeo and Juliet in Amish Country. Zach is an Amish boy who just wants to be like everyone else. Sam is a modern American teen with her own problems fitting in with the mean girl culture at her high school. Sam and Zach are not supposed to fall in love, but they do. And true love never runs smoothly, especially in Lancaster, Pennsylvania."

-Janice Maxson, Reviewer

"Laugh out loud funny! Amish Guys Don't Call is a witty romantic comedy that entertains from beginning to end. Sam is a complex and relatible protagonist who falls for a boy that is far more than Plain."

- Kate Scott author of Counting to D
