Publisher's Description

Just One Perfect Night Katy gets the chance of a lifetime—she’s been elected to the homecoming court, and there are rumors her crush, Bryce, might ask her to go with him. What could be more perfect? For one unforgettable night she would be able to experience life as many other teenage girls do—a stunning gown, gorgeous hair, jewelry, and makeup. Except Katy’s Mennonite community prohibits dancing as well as fancy dresses and makeup, and her father would not approve. When an opportunity arises that could allow her to attend without her father knowing, Katy must decide: Will she hold tight to her convictions, or will she sacrifice her principles for one special night?

Author Bio

Bestselling, award-winning author Kim Vogel Sawyer wears many hats besides “writer.” As a wife, mother, grandmother, and active participant in her church, her life is happily full. But Kim’s passion lies in writing stories of hope that encourage her readers to place their lives in God’s capable hands. An active speaking ministry assists her with her desire. Kim and her husband make their home on the beautiful plains of Kansas, the setting for many of Kim’s novels.

Editorial Reviews

Katy is continuing her education at a mainstream high school in this follow-up to Katy’s New World (2010). This is a true sequel, relying on the prior books for an introduction to characters and the situation that has Katy, an Old Order Mennonite, trying to function in a more worldly milieu. It is not the classes or schoolwork that provides the conflict here, but the vast difference in social and cultural assumptions and the tug of war between Katy’s family and beliefs with the more typical way of teenagers in the modern world. When Katy is selected to represent the sophomore class as the homecoming attendant, the pull of peers, popularity and the longing to participate grow stronger. Katy’s father is marrying Mrs. Graber, a widow, and he, plus the entire Mennonite community, are distracted by these celebratory preparations, leaving Katy to make her decisions on her own. Readers who enjoyed the first two books or who are intrigued by the moral dilemma between personal choice and adhering to a religious code are clearly the intended audience.

    Katy Lambright is a Mennonite girl going to a public high school. As such, she is constantly exposed to ideas and concepts that are totally foreign to her.

    Katy's Homecoming, written by Kim Vogel Sawyer, is the third book in the Katy Lambright Series. In this episode, Katy is introduced to the concept of a homecoming dance. She wants to go to the dance for several reasons: It sounds like fun; she's never been to a dance before; she's been chosen to represent her sophomore class; and she's been asked to the dance by Bryce, a boy she has a crush on.

    However, dancing is strictly forbidden in her Mennonite order. So, Katy has some tough choices to make, choices that will determine how she responds to the pressures of the modern world.

    What I Like: Everything. I especially liked reading about what is must be like to be a part of the Mennonite culture.

    What I Dislike: Nothing.

    Overall Rating: Excellent.

    Age Appeal: Young adult.
