Katy's New World

The Katy Lambright Series Book One
Kim Vogel Sawyer
2010
Zondervan
Fiction/YA/Christian

Katy Lambright is starting a new chapter in her life.  A chapter usually not a part of a young Old Order Mennonite girl, but one started with permission from the church.  She is going to attend public high school.  Katy has an inquisitive mind, with a great eagerness to learn more than she learned in her one room school.  However public high school brings with it, its own issues.  Fitting in, is really not an option since it is important to not be a part of the world.  Making friends is not easy, but she does manage to make friends with a young girl whose father is a Baptist minister, they really seem to understand each other.  However that also brings the jealousies that come when old friends feel left out. 
I really enjoy Kim Vogel Sawyers books, and this one was no exception.  She made Katy totally believable, not an overly self-righteous young woman, but a young teenager who struggles with parental issues, with embarrassing moments, and with making right decisions.
