Yours Forever

Christy Miller Collection Book Three: Yours Forever by Robin Jones Gunn

Pages: 157
Christy is back at Aunt Marti and Uncle Bob's house on the beach for the entire week between Christmas and New Year's . . . and Todd is in town, too! The cute surfer completely captured Christy's heart last summer, and sh'es eager to spend every possible minute with him. But soon Christy and her aunt are barely speaking, and it seems like all her friends are mad at her, too--including Todd! Is he hers or isn't he? And why would God let things get so tangled?

Christy, Christy, Christy. Christy has to be one of the best characters ever. She is so real. Her feelings and emotion just fly off the page and as she gets closer to God and her friends, she becomes so real. She also makes mistakes, jumps to conclusions, speaks before thinking, and doesn't always watch her temper. But, with God's help, Christy realizes she can get through anything and that He will be there for her forever.

That's why this book was so amazing.

Out of the first Volume, Yours Forever was my favorite book. Struggling relationships between Todd, friends, her family, and God is what Christy faces here and even though she doesn't always get it right, she persues and with God's help she makes everything right.

This book tells an amazing story about the differences of liking somebody and being in love, and what it means to really be someone's friend forever. I don't think anyone can walk away after reading this book unchanged. The Christy Miller Collection is such a wonderful set of books, and I think everybody should read them.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars
