Product Description

Join Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen in these two rediscovered stories. Both stories, which slightly overlap, take place one summer when both girls take vacation trips. In Now Boarding at Gate 10, Christy and her family are travelling to Wisconsin for her grandparents' 50th anniversary party. Once there in her old hometown, Christy runs into an old school crush, Matthew, and sees what life could have been if she never moved.
In In the Event of a Water Landing, Sierra is taking a trip with her friend Jana's family to Montana. On the way, Sierra and her friends get to deal with cancelled flights, the Mall of America, and Sierra knocking out a security guard! Once they reach Montana, Sierra realizes that Jana is much more ready to blossom than Sierra is. Will Sierra figure out her way?

Publisher's Description

Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen cross paths on their way to summer vacations that reveal what a gift it is to have a true Forever Friend.

Now Boarding at Gate 10
After her high school graduation, still aching from Todd’s departure, Christy joins her family on a trip to Wisconsin to visit relatives. While there, she reunites with Matthew, an old friend from junior high. When Matthew starts to show a romantic interest in Christy, she realizes this summer vacation could change everything she thought her future would be.
 
In the Event of a Water Landing
Fifteen-year-old Sierra Jensen can’t wait to spend her summer vacation with her friend Jana at a pristine lake in Montana. But when they arrive, it becomes clear that Jana’s only interest is acquiring a boyfriend. Sierra just wants to hang out with the guys as friends, but Jana turns every encounter into a possible romantic relationship. As their friendship begins to suffer, Sierra wonders if it’s possible to find a Forever Friend who will listen to you, laugh with you, and keep your confidences.

    Departures by Robin Jones Gunn is two novellas in one. Robin has done a fantastic job crafting these two stories. She has brought such depth and life to the two main characters that you immediately feel drawn into their lives.

    The first novella, "Now Boarding at Gate 10 A Christy Miller Novella," is about Christy Miller as she and her family head back to Wisconsin for her grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. Adventure, mystery, and romance find Christy when she least expects it. through it all Christy learns what it takes to have a forever kind of relationship and what it means to truly display the love of Christ.

    The second novella, "In the Event of a Water Landing A Sierra Jensen Novella," is about Sierra Jensen as she spends the Fourth of July with her best friend Jana and Jana's family at their lake cabin in Montana. Sierra's summer vacation is filled with adventure, mystery, and crazy roller-coaster rides, including the one her emotions and feelings seem to be on during this trip. Sierra finds that her best friend Jana is ready to blossom into womanhood, while Sierra on the other hand is far from ready. Through the trip Sierra learns what it means to blossom with wisdom and understanding.

    Both novellas are fantastic stories that any young girl will love to read. Robin has done a fantastic job developing characters that are good godly role models for young girls who are blossoming into womanhood. Being a Christy Miller fan myself for many years i loved being able to catch up with my favorite character, and i can't wait til the day when I get to pass on these beautiful stories to my own girls!

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

    Now Boarding at Gate 10- a Christy Miller novella

    Having just graduated high school, Christy goes back to Wisconsin with her family to visit relatives. There she reunites with Matthew, a boy she once had a huge crush on. Now that Todd is gone, could Christy start over with someone like Matthew? What if someone else was interested long before Christy came to visit?

    In the Event of a Water Landing- a Sierra Jensen novella

    Sierra heads off to a lake in Montana for a vacation with her friend Jana and Jana's family. Excited to have lots of fun, Sierra is frustrated with Jana's new boy-crazy demeanor. Will the whole trip be nothing but one big fight? And is Jana right? Should Sierra grow up and start looking for a boyfriend too?

    What sweet stories. It was nice to visit Christy again. She is a wonderful character, and Robin Jones Gunn always weaves such wonderful stories. How fun to have the chance to read two stories that weren't included in the new collections. I've read all Christy's books except the college years, but this was the first Sierra-only book I've read. I liked her very much and must start reading the Sierra Jensen collection soon. I've you've never read these, I highly recommend Robin Jones Gunn's books. They are a must read for any teenage girl, and for the nostalgic adult too.

    I was actually really looking forward to reading this book so I was excited to recieve it. I had read the entire Christy Miller series about 5 years ago and really enjoyed them. Though I am a bit older now, I still enjoyed this book. It is actually 2 short stories in one. The first is about Christy Miller and her return home to Wisconsin after living in California for several years. Mostly, it is about Christy meeting up with and old grade school crush. It is quite cheesy in several parts but would be perfectly appropriate for a younger audience. In the second mini book, the main character is Sierra Jensen. She is on a trip with her friends and mostly the short story is about teenage girls flirting and chasing guys. I didn't really like this book as much as the first one but all in all it wasn't too bad. It would definitely be great for one who has read the Christy Miller series and Sierra Jensen series by Robin Jones Gunn and enjoyed them. I would recommend this book.

    I recieved this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review.

    I wish I had these books when I was in middle school. Gunn does a great job of creating characters with depth who are great role models for young girls. While the books are about high school aged kids, I think they'd capture the attention of middle school girls better. I know I always read books about kids who were just a little older than me as I was growing up. These books can be really helpful in preparing young girls for some of the struggles they will be facing. They allow girls to start thinking about them and develop a plan for how to respond to certain situations. I think they'll also help girls to stay focused on God through the middle and high school years. I hope my daughter develops a love of reading so I can introduce her to these books in about 8 years.

    I have enjoyed all of this author's book and this was no exception! The story of these girls was great and the writing draws you in with each word! I would reccomend reading the Cristy Miller and Sierra Jensen series before reading this, so that you don't confuse yourself with the events that take place in the book! A great book for teen/preteen girls

    I recieved this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest opinion!!
