What a dream! What did he call me? Kilikina! What does that mean? Oh, Todd! I wish I could say all the things I'm feeling right now!

Summary: A 16th birthday spent in Hawaii with the guy of her dreams and her best friend that she hasn't seen in a year - it should be a dream come true. But Paula has changed and so has Christy. Christy wants to reach Paula for Christ but Paula is busy trying to reach Todd with flirtations. Christy has learned that jealousy gets you nowhere, but it's awfully hard with her best friend trying hard to steal her boyfriend.
Notes: Dreams are nice, but sometimes following God's plan can lead to greater joy. It's not easy to step back and trust Him to make things right, but as Christy learns, He's alot better at it than we are! Teen girls can relate to Christy and her struggles throughout the series, but also see a character who learns, sometimes the hard way, what the Biblical perspective should be. This is the 5th book in the Christy Miller series. This series has been republished multiple times and is available in multiple forms.
Recommendation Scale: 5

Ephesians 3:20-21 -Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power at work within us, to Him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
