I just finished reading the first book in the Christy Miller series, and I am very impressed with how it went. This is a great book for young (girl) teens, and is all about a young girl re-learning about God and what it means to be a Christian.

The book was very appropriate, but there was some mention of… ‘real life’ things. (I am talking in code words) There was mention of ‘Drugs’ and mention of… a girl trying to… kill… herself… But when it was mentioned it didn’t like turn horrible (per-say); the books about a girl growing up. (It’s not bad, it is actually very Christian-friendly) The girl in the book, is just learning more of… the world… and she’s growing up. (And unfortunately finding love… Gross!!!)

There is romance in the book, but no talk of anyhting… ‘Bleh!!!’ Just a fourteen-year-old girl thinking guys are cute… I personally, do NOT like all the ‘Lover-Dovey’ stuff, but I will admit it was not ‘bad’. All the ‘love’ was very appropriate and Christian-friendly… I just don’t like reading romances!

Over all, this is a very good clean book for early teens… if your mother says it’s okay. (My mom gave this book to me, so I would say this book is more for 13 and up… girls. Sorry guys!)


  • A really good book for young teen girls
  • Super Christian-friendly


  • Mentions some ‘adult’ things like drugs and alcohol

Fourteen-year-old Christy Miller has the dream summer ahead of her in the sun-kissed California, staying with her aunt and uncle at their beachfront home. Aunt Marti loves to shop, and those surfers are pretty cut-especially Todd. Christy promised her parents that she wouldn’t do anything she would regret later, and some of her beach friends are a little wild. But Todd and his “God-lover” friends are giving Christy a new image of all things enteral. Can this summer live up to its promise?
