Bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn packs each one with enough action, romance, and drama to keep you reading and wanting more. It all starts the summer Christy vacations on a California beach and meets two friends who change her life forever.

A red-headed new best friend, a try at cheerleading, a job at a pet store, and expectations for the prom fill Christy’s high school years with a string of laughter-and-tears moments. Fireball Katie keeps everyone guessing what she’ll do next, and surfer Todd keeps showing up while popular Rick has determined to get her full attention! As these memorable years unfold, Christy and her God-loving friends find out what it means to be a “peculiar treasure.” Follow Christy Miller as she stays true to her identity in Christ, drawing closer to God for help in realizing her dreams and dealing with her disappointments.

Whether you’re meeting her for the first time or have known her for years—

Christy Is a Forever Friend

True Friends

What is a true friend? Christy Miller knows she has two of them: Todd and Katie. To show how much she appreciates them, she writes to Todd, who’s off surfing in Hawaii, and she agrees to join the ski club with Katie…even though she’s scared of skiing! Fortunately, Christy and Katie can laugh as they bumble their way around the bunny slopes at Lake Tahoe. But Christy finds herself caught between new friends and her loyalty to Katie. Will Christy find a way to be a true friend when it counts most? And will she ever hear from Todd?

Starry Night

It’s Christmastime, and Christy Miller has so much going on: family time, 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. Todd’s buddy Doug gives her some insight, and she starts to appreciate him in a whole new way. Rick Doyle shows up again...but is he pursuing Christy or the cutest elf at the mall? Through it all, will Christy find someone special to count the stars with?

Seventeen Wishes

It’s summer, and that means the beach and other adventures. And Christy Miller’s best friend, Katie, is always full of ideas. They’ll be camp counselors! But when Katie can’t go, Christy 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. When Christy’s seventeenth birthday arrives later in the summer, just what will she be wishing for?

Story Behind the Book

“The Christy Miller series was actually born when a group of thirteen-year-olds challenged me to write a novel. I’d been questioning the content of their favorite books when they said, ‘Why don’t you write a book for us?’ I told them no, I only wrote picture books. But they persisted: ‘How hard could it be? We’ll even tell you what to write! We want a love story with teenagers at the beach.’ And there you go. Summer Promise first released seventeen years ago and is now translated into five languages. I continue to hear from readers all over the world, many girls saying that they gave their life to Christ after reading Summer Promise. I love that!”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing series 1. True Friends It had been awhile since I read Volume 2 (books 4-6 in the Christy Miller series )so I was worried that it would take me awhile to catch up and remember what had happened so far in the series. Happily enough, I was able to pick up the story and found everything came back to me quite quickly. I really enjoyed this read and it reminded/reinforced not only how great the storyline is but how important these novels are. Especially for teenage readers. This novel faced a few topics surrounding comparison, jealousy, youth exposed to alcohol, peer pressure etc. The novel also gave examples of missionary work within "normal" everyday life, living in this world but not being of this world, and the importance of who you surround yourself with. For the first time while reading this series, I found myself picking up my Bible while reading! This actually shocks me but some of the verses mentioned made me want to pick up my Bible right away. Also, I felt some examples used in the book ('peculiar treasures' for instance) really helped me to gain more understanding by having a picture to the scripture. Definitely a good read and I can't wait for what is to come next! 2. Starry Night What a good read! I really loved everything about it. I loved how it was around Christmas time and a New Year too, especially as I was in that transition while reading it. Honestly, this book was really relatable to what teenagers face in everyday life (job responsibilities, family responsibilities, changes in friendships, past relationships, conflicting emotions and personal thoughts, etc). It's definitely a well rounded novel that encounters many different relatable issues. Like the previous novel, I found myself reaching for my Bible when a verse of scripture was mentioned. This book (and series) has definitely added more to my understanding of God's word and it has been a helpful companion. The ending of this novel has me even more excited for the next one (as each one of the series has). I actually kind of got oddly emotional at the end of this novel with the 'surprise guest'. I don't even know why! I'm loving these novels and I actually get nervous each time I finish one because I don't want the series to ever end! I feel like these novels have been perfect for me. They are appropriate, entertaining, and relatable. Moreso than possibly anything else I've read in my life. Definitely could not recommend this series more. 3. Seventeen Wishes This was probably my least favourite in the trio but still a good and entertaining read. I think many that have been camp counselors in the past will empathize with Christy's feelings when at camp. Also, I found it true and a good message that sometimes we can imagine/dream something to be way more than it actually is. For those who read this will get what I'm saying. Again, a good one to read but the other two really resonated to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great series I read this series up to this volume when I was younger, and I grew less interested in this series because Christy got older and seemed less relevant to me. But now, I'm starting to enjoy this series once again.
