Under a Maui Moon: This is a refreshing young adult book where the teenagers do not worry about their looks and if they do they are reminded about what is really important.
In this book we are reintroduced to Sierra Jensen whom we were introduced to in the Christy Miller series. At the beginning of the book she is preparing to return to America from England where she has been serving on a missions team in Ireland. In the airport she meets a young man who is older than her and has random meetings with him. When she This is a refreshing young adult book where the teenagers do not worry about their looks and if they do they are reminded about what is really important.
When she does finally return home her family has moved to Portland, Oregon from the small northern California town that she grew up in so that her parents can take care of her grandmother who is suffering from dementia. With any young single woman she wonders if he is the right guy for her and even arranges to try to meet him on his college campus.
Her parents do talk sense into her about using the car wisely and about meeting new people in her new town. However there is one scene in the book that would not have happened if she had her own cell phone that she could make phone calls from internationally. The eBook format on my Kindle had a few problems. The story centers on sixteen year-old Sierra Jensen who is mature for her age.
The book ends without the happily-ever-after scene, but it is satisfying. None of the books I read at that time reflected my Christian worldview.
Only You, Sierra
If you know a Christian girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen, I recommend buying this book for her, as well as Ms. I reviewed this book as part of LibraryThing's first reader program. Jan 03, Kristine rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sierra is a typical year-old struggling to figure out life as she returns home to Oregon from a mission trip to England when she met Christy, thus linking the two series.
Though I liked the first series better, Sierra is the character I can relate to best out of any book I've ever read. She's not meek and mild. She's not a girly-girl even though deep down she is. This is a real girl learning to balance her life with God's desires for her. While Christy was the girl I wanted Sierra is a typical year-old struggling to figure out life as she returns home to Oregon from a mission trip to England when she met Christy, thus linking the two series.
While Christy was the girl I wanted to be, Sierra will always be the girl I am.
Only You, Sierra: Book 1 in the Sierra Jensen Series - Robin Jones Gunn - Google Книги
This is definitely recommended for fans of the first series. There are mentions throughout the series of Christy, letting you know what's going on in her life between her last book and her college books. But I would also recommend it for those like me who may not have been able to relate to Christy quite as well as we would have liked. Sierra's entire journey is perfect, and it was awesome last year to be able to catch up with her in Love Finds You in Sunset Beach Hawaii.
Jun 12, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: I started reading this book and was amazed at the similarities between me and Sierra, we had a couple aspects that were exactly alike. But there were other parts of her character that I was nothing like, but I was still surprised. I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend to fans of the Christy Miller series.

Jul 25, Diana rated it really liked it Shelves: I always feel like Sierra is a more fully formed character than Christy, I think because less of her story depends on a guy as much as I love Christy and Todd.

Oct 06, Keri rated it really liked it. Last read May Sep 05, Tiffany rated it it was amazing. This is basically my review for all the Sierra Jensen books.
The writing style was excessively juvenile.
Ultimately, it just didn't ring as particularly believable. The first book in the Sierra Jensen series set the stage for the remainder of the books. A must read for readers who enjoyed the "Christy Miller" series, especially since this is where the previous She had always been the bold, free-spirited type. But then, her whole foundation of home and family had never before been rocked. Sierra Jensen settled back into her seat and gazed through the train window at the English countryside.
So much was on
