christymillerTitle: The Christy Miller Collection

. . . . .

Author:

Robin Jones Gunn

(You can read more on her website or follow her on Twitter or Facebook!)

. . . . .

What the book is about:

It all starts the summer Christy vacations on a California beach and meets two friends who change her life forever. But after moving across the country with her family, Christy must begin her sophomore year of high school uncertain where she’ll fit in. A red-headed new best friend, a try at cheerleading, a job at a pet store, and expectations for the prom fill Christy’s high school years with a string of laughter-and-tears moments. Fireball Katie keeps everyone guessing what she’ll do next, and surfer Todd keeps showing up while popular Rick has determined to get her full attention! As these memorable years unfold, Christy and her God-loving friends find out what it means to be a “peculiar treasure.” Follow Christy Miller as she stays true to her identity in Christ, drawing closer to God for help in realizing her dreams and dealing with her disappointments.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

The first time I met Robin Jones Gunn, this is what I said to her, through tears: “CHRISTY MILLER WAS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS IN HIGH SCHOOL.” I know. So dorky. But SO TRUE. That’s the beauty of these books- you become friends with the characters and because Robin is a total baller, the books continue as Christy grows up through high school, college, and young adulthood. So yes, this is a little bit of a cheat because I’m calling this “Book #28” but it’s actually a series and yes, I think you need to read them all. In fact, any young woman would love getting to know Christy and her dude Todd and their friends. Christy is a great influence on any young lady… and she’s a great friend. 🙂
