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, a reprint of two novella's is both a fast read and entertaining. In Now Boarding at Gate 10, Christy Miller and her family take a trip back to Madison, Wisconsin for her grandparent's 50th anniversary party. She and her family lived there before their move to CA. While visiting, Christy gets together with an old friend and takes a walk down memory lane. I especially liked the focus on teens who want more than just a go-to-church-on-Sundays relationship with God; as well as the extreme commitment to God's ways as it relates to relationships. "The right way to approach any such relationship would be to pray about it, develop a friendship, make the proper commitments at the proper times, and know that each choice was a follow-up to the first decision that strengthened it." In this story, both Chrisy and her old crush learn a lot about being in a relationship and what a commitment it is.

    In the second story, In the Event of a Water Landing, Sierra Jensen goes on a vacation with her friend Jana and her family. Right from the airport, not only is she introduced to sides of Jana she was not familiar with, but their trip is filled with unexpected adventures, including a side trip to Minnesota's Mall of America. For Sierra, the rides at Nickelodean Universe were not the only rides she would experience on this trip - her emotions were on a roller coaster of their own as she sorted out the feelings of a confused teenage girl suddenly being noticed by boys and not exactly sure she was ready and willing to take the plunge into the next stage of her life.

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