Summary: Todd and Christy are dating, really and truly boyfriend and girlfriend now. And when they get a chance to express their feelings about each other, it draws them even closer! A return trip to Disneyland that ends the opposite of the original one two years ago, tender moments while Christy has a cold, sweet kisses exchanged, it all makes for the stuff of dreams. But when an opportunity for missions comes up, both Todd and Christy have to ask themselves what matters most: their relationship or following God's calling.
Notes: This book is tender, romantic, and SPOILER ALERT: a tearjerker! In this book, almost more than any of the others yet, young girls can look to Christy as a role model of a young woman willing to follow God no matter what. 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 11th book in the Christy Miller series. This series has been republished multiple times and is available in multiple forms.
Recommendation Scale: 5!
