Today I am here with a book review. I decided to do review Departures by Robin Jones Gunn today because it is such a summer/4th of July book. So since tomorrow is the 4th of July I just had to do this review today. :)
Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen cross paths on their way to summer vacations that reveal what a gift it is to have a true Forever Friend.
Now Boarding at Gate 10
After her high school graduation, still aching from Todd’s departure, Christy joins her family on a trip to Wisconsin to visit relatives. While there, she reunites with Matthew, an old friend from junior high. When Matthew starts to show a romantic interest in Christy, she realizes this summer vacation could change everything she thought her future would be.
In the Event of a Water Landing
Fifteen-year-old Sierra Jensen can’t wait to spend her summer vacation with her friend Jana at a pristine lake in Montana. But when they arrive, it becomes clear that Jana’s only interest is acquiring a boyfriend. Sierra just wants to hang out with the guys as friends, but Jana turns every encounter into a possible romantic relationship. As their friendship begins to suffer, Sierra wonders if it’s possible to find a Forever Friend who will listen to you, laugh with you, and keep your confidences.
Departures is a really fun summery book with two novellas in it. One is about Christy Miller and the other is about Sierra Jensen.
The first story, Now Boarding at Gate 10, is about Christy. She has just graduated from high school and she and her family take a trip to visit her grandparents. This story takes place between Sweet Dreams, book 11, and A Promise is Forever, book 12, in the 12 book Christy Miller series.
The next story, In the Event of a Water Landing, is Sierra's story. She is 15 in this story and it takes place about six months before the Sierra Jensen series starts.
Christy and Sierra unknowingly cross paths on their way to their summer vacations.
These stories take place on and around the 4th of July, which makes this a really fun summer book!
I give this book 7.5 out of 10 R's
