It seems I came in the middle of the lives of these characters but it didn't matter. I didn't get lost at all. It is a good stand alone series but, if you're interested, you might want to read the Christy Miller series first. It introduces all of these characters. You will fall in love with them, for sure. I did, and I'm a forty-something mom.
The book begins with high school junior age, Sierra on a mission trip. She makes life-long friends with these college-age kids that she works with. She struggles with many insecurities being the youngest. She also is scared to be going back home because while she is gone, her family has relocated. They have moved in with her grandmother. She will be having to make all new friends in a new school. It's all very scary.
This young girl has all the insecurities and joys and sorrows of any young Christian teenager and she messes up and she gets into trouble. It is a fun read. Once you have begun to read the books, you certainly do not want to stop. I highly recommend this series for your teenage girl, ages junior high on up. I enjoyed it. I'm not too proud to admit that!
