BOOK REVIEW Sierra Jensen Collection: Volume 1 by Robin Jones Gunn

From The Publisher:

She's the bold, free-spirited type. She's cute, she's fun, and she's following God. She's Sierra Jensen, Christy Miller's good friend, ready for her junior year of high school! All 12 books in the popular Sierra Jensen series come together in four volumes to reveal the ups and downs of Sierra's incredible God-led journey! Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Book 1: Only You, Sierra

The Europe mission trip brought Sierra Jensen the best gift possible: two new friends, Katie and Christy. But now Sierra is headed home, and she can't help but wonder, will her friendships last? And what about her new home? Her family moved while she was gone, and that means facing a new high school. And the biggest question of all: Will she ever find love? Then a chance meeting in a London airport answers that question. Paul makes her heart leap. But she'll never see him again! Or will she?

Book 2: In Your Dreams

Sierra has had it! She's done everything she can to find the right job, good friends, and most important, true love. But nothing is working out. Now she has to stay home to care for her grandmother. By herself. for the whole weekend! It will be terrible. But a series of starling surprises shows Sierra just how wrong she is--and before she knows it, she's on her way to the perfect job, her first real date, and an encounter with a mysterious stranger.

Book 3: Don't You Wish

Sierra has three wishes: visit her California friends; have her older sister, Tawni, disappear; and learn more about the mysterious stranger. When Easter break arrives, Sierra's first wish comes true! She's headed to Newport Beach for fun, sun, and surf. Unfortunately, not only does Tawni not disappear, she accompanies Sierra on her escape. What's worse, everyone has a boyfriend except Sierra. But will her wishes begin to change as she realizes God wants to mold her according to His wishes?

My Review: 

These books kept my interest. You can pick up any one of them and know what is going on without reading the ones before it. But you'll want to read the books first to last because you discover situations being resolved as you read.

I think that it is annoying how young girls are taught by society to have a boyfriend so young. Sierra is 16, which isn't extremely young so I found that refreshing. The characters are Christians in these books so their relationships are portrayed in a manner that isn't sexual - something else that was refreshing to read.

All the teenage drama goes on in these books. There are sibling issues, trouble making friends, thinking guys are cute, wanting a job to have money, messy rooms, and more. I would recommend this series to the tween crowd. This series of books would be good for the girl that hasn't started dating yet. It would be a great started point for discussions with your child about relationships and dating.
