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 "

The Christy Miller series is a Christian book series for teen girls. I read this book series when I was a teen myself and am now reading it with my preteen daughter. My daughter hates reading yet the story has her hooked just as it did me many years ago. Even though the series is not brand-new it's still seems current and my daughter is easily able to identify with the character. The book does talk about some real-life issues that can be hard however it always does so with a Christian perspective. It has really opened up some doors for my daughter night to talk about some hard issues. I highly recommend this book series!
