Publisher's Description

The first book in the Christy Miller series from Christy Award-winner Robin Jones Gunn

When 14-year-old Christy leaves her family's Wisconsin farm to spend the summer at her wealthy aunt and uncle's beach home in Newport, she expects the it to be the best summer of her life. She's full of hope that surfer Todd will like her; the beach crowd will accept her; and she can become like her gorgeous new friend, Alissa.

But the summer doesn't unfold as Christy hoped, and she discovers this season also holds heartache. Todd wavers between Christy and another girl; 16-year-old Shawn dies in a drug-related surfing accident--and the police want to know how Christy was involved; and Alissa discloses that her sophistication hides a painful past.

Through it all, will Christy keep her promise to her parents not to do anything she'll regret? Or will she do anything to get Todd, to be accepted, to force her summer to give her everything it promised?

Editorial Reviews

Here’s What Readers Are Saying about the Christy Miller series…

"I wish I could find the words to tell you what a blessing your books have been! I’ve learned a lot from Christy’s
character, and Todd makes me want to wait for a hero!  Please keep writing!"

"Before I finished the first chapter of Summer Promise I was hooked. I had always called myself a Christian, but it
wasn’t until your books that I really knew what it meant to lay down my life to Jesus Christ. You would not believe
what a difference God has made in my life already. Thank you!"

"If people ever tell me that being a Christian is boring, I tell them to go read your books! They helped me to start
living for God and to look to my Bible for answers to everything."

"I read the Christy Miller books during a really stressful time, and they were like a calm in the storm. I have
learned so much from them, too! When Doug told Christy that godliness is beautiful, it was an entirely new
concept to me! I will not hesitate in saying these books changed my life."

"My best friend and I have been reading your books since we were twelve years old. We love them! They have brought
us closer to the Lord, and we treasure this more than anything in the world."

"I had to read a book for school, and I chose Summer Promise. I never knew it would change my life. I’ve read the
series at least six times. I now have a personal relationship with Christ. Thank you for being obedient to God."
"When I was in sixth grade, my mom gave me the first Christy Miller book. These books changed my life! Please, don’t stop writing until your hand falls off!"

"I’m thirteen years old, and I love your books! All my friends are reading your books, too. We wish they were movies."

"I absolutely love your books. You are my favorite author. After I read the first one, I immediately became a
Christian and turned my life over to God. I have struggled some, but your books helped me to stay on track. I thank
you from the bottom of my heart for writing them."

"I wanted to thank you for all the books you have written. They have been my joy when things are hard. Every book
has been amazing."

    Christy, a farm girl from Wisconsin, is spending the summer with her rich uncle and aunt in California. The first big change comes with her new makeover, haircut, and stylish clothes. Then she falls in love with a surfer on the beach. But does he like her back? Soon things are way out of control and Christy constantly feels depressed. Her friends tell her she should ask Jesus into her heart, but is she ready for that? And besides, she has gone to church all her life anyway

    Genres: realistic, romance

    This is the first in the Christy Miller series. Christy accepts Christ only at the end of the book. Before that the book throws in ideas about Christ only from time to time. However, after she asks Him into her heart, it talks more about God. Probably, the next books will be more on track spiritually than this one.

    For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

    "A Summer Promise" wasn't the best book I've read, but it also wasn't the worse. The plot idea was good, but the character development seemed a bit slow and stilted.

    I did read this after reading some truly phenomenal books, and those tend to make all others look lousy. Despite that, I still enjoyed the story.

    I got this book free from Multnomah Publishing for the purposes of this review.

    Great book for teen girls!
    October 27, 2013
    I finally got the chance to read my first Christy Miller book, after hearing so many great things about the series. Summer Promise is definitely an enjoyable read! Christy's story drew me in from the start and I finished it in one sitting.

    Christy is such a sweet and innocent character that I think a lot of younger girls can relate to. She reminded me a lot of my younger self. Occasionally I thought some of her actions made her appear younger than a fourteen-year-old girl, and that sort of drew me out of the story. However, the majority of Christy's actions was realistic.

    Summer Promise deals with real issues that a lot of teens face today. Christy's journey to become a true Christian is believable, and not preachy or forced at any point. The questions she asks about her faith are true concerns that many teens have. I wish I had read this when I was a little younger, but I still loved it and I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

    This is a very cute and sweet book that I think a lot of younger girls will love. I recommend it to middle school/high school girls!

    I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
