High School Years
Christy rolls through her junior year growing closer to the people that mean the most to her and trying to make sense of a few other relationships that keep her guessing.
What is a true friend? Christy Miller knows she has two of them: Todd and Katie. But Todd took off for Hawaii where he's attending college and surfing every chance he gets. Katie turns up the encouragement and convinces Christy to join the ski club with her even though Christy is pretty sure skiing is not a sport where she's going to shine. But Forever Friends support each other, right? So why is Katie the one laughing the loudest and longest as they bumble their way around the bunny slopes at Lake Tahoe? Things get complicated when Christy finds herself caught between new friends who invite her into their circle and her loyalty to Katie who is now on the outside. Will Christy find a way to be a true friend when it counts most? And will she ever see Todd again?
It’s Christmastime, and Christy has lots going on with school, family, work, and maybe, just maybe, going to the Rose Bowl Parade with a bunch of friends. If only she could answer Uncle Bob’s tough questions about life. What does her future hold? Todd’s friend, Doug gives her some insight that causes her to start appreciating Doug in a whole new way. Since Todd is still off at college in Hawaii, Rick takes the opportunity to show up at the most unexpected moments. But is he there to see Christy or the cutest elf at the mall? The new year finds Christy sitting on the roof of a familiar VW bus counting the stars. The question is, which guy is sitting beside her when that heavenly moment finally happens?
Summer means the beach time to Christy. But her best friend, Katie has a different idea -- let's be camp counselors! Christy warms to the plan until Katie announces at the last minute that she has to back out. Christy takes on the challenge and soon finds she is bewildered and overwhelmed by her fifth-grade girls, who have boundless energy for anything except what Christy wants them to do. Do they even hear a word she says? Soon they’re playing matchmaker between Christy and Jaeson, a handsome counselor and he doesn’t seem to mind. Will a canoe ride in the summer moonlight change the feelings Christy has carried for Todd the last two years? Christy’s birthday turns into the post-camp, summer beach party she's been dreaming of. Or does it? When Christy blows out the seventeen candles what will she be wishing?
