Departures by Robin Jones Gunn

Departures by Robin Jones Gunn is the first book by this author that I've ever read.  The book contains two slightly overlapping stories that take place one summer when Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen take vacation trips.  Christy  and her family are travelling to Wisconsin to see her grandparents for their 50th anniversary.  While there, Christy runs into an old crush and she sees what life could have been if she'd never moved.  Meanwhile, Sierra, is taking a trip with her friend's family to Montana.  On the way, they have to deal with cancelled flights, the Mall of America (I've actually been there, so it was neat to be familiar with it!) and Sierra knocking out a security guard (I never did that though!).  Sierra finds out on this trip that her friend is blossoming faster than she is and it leaves Sierra wondering.

Both of the girls in these stories are great role models for young girls and they are helpful in showing us young ladies, how to develop a plan for how to respond in certain situations.  These characters and their values really captured my attention.  I'm sure that all my friends, especially my church buds, will love this book because it will help them all stay focused on God as we blossom into young ladies.  I plan on sharing it with them.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for sending me this book in exchange for my review!
