About Sierra Jensen Collection, Vol 1
She’s the bold, free-spirited type. She’s cute, she’s fun, and she’s following God. She’s Sierra Jensen, Christy Miller’s good friend, ready for her junior year of high school! All twelve books in the popular Sierra Jensen series come together in four volumes to reveal the ups and downs of Sierra’s incredible God-led journey!
Volume One: In Only You, Sierra, she’s nervous to be the “new girl” after her family moves to Portland and wonders if meeting Paul in London was only by chance. Just when everything important seems to elude her, all it takes is one weekend In Your Dreams to prove otherwise. But even a vacation doesn’t keep her troubles away in Don’t You Wish.
Christy Miller knows a good friend when she meets her,
and so will you—
Get ready for Sierra Jensen!
Only You, Sierra
The Europe mission trip brought Sierra Jensen the best gift possible: two new friends, Katie and Christy. But now Sierra is headed home, and she can’t help but wonder will her friendships last? And what about her new home? Her family moved while she was gone, and that means facing a new high school. And the biggest question of all: Will she ever find love? Then a chance meeting in a London airport answers that question. Paul makes her heart leap. But she’ll never see him again! Or will she?
In Your Dreams
Sierra has had it! She’s done everything she can to find the right job, good friends, and most important, true love. But nothing is working out. Now she has to stay home to care for her grandmother. By herself. For the whole weekend! It will be terrible. But a series of startling surprises shows Sierra just how wrong she is—and before she knows it, she’s on her way to the perfect job, her first real date, and an encounter with a mysterious stranger.
Don’t You Wish
Sierra has three wishes: visit her California friends; have her older sister, Tawni, disappear; and learn more about the mysterious stranger. When Easter break arrives, Sierra’s first wish comes true! She’s headed to Newport Beach for fun, sun, and surf. Unfortunately, not only does Tawni not disappear, she accompanies Sierra on her escape. What’s worse, everyone has a boyfriend except Sierra. But will her wishes begin to change as she realizes God wants to mold her according to His wishes?
Story Behind the Book
“After writing the twelve-book Christy Miller series for teens, a new character showed up on the pages of the final novel. Her name was Sierra Jensen, and she was so compelling as a teenage character that readers began asking for a series about Sierra in order to hear more about her life choices. Our family had just moved to Portland at the time, and I found it easy to picture a sixteen-year-old like Sierra shopping at the local vintage clothing stores, hanging out with friends at a garage band concert, and serving at the homeless shelter on weekends.”

I was a little skeptical about reading this series because the reviews I read prior to reading it said it was aimed more towards a middle school audience. However, just a few pages in I found myself really enjoying the storyline. I received the Sierra Jensen Collection Vol. 1 series a year or two ago to review and I completely forgot about it until now and once I started reading it I could not stop. This, however, was not because the book was...
When I first heard about the Christy Miller collection and started reading it as a teenager, I became hooked and very excited to read the rest of the books. So when I got the chance to review the Sierra Jensen collection, I thought would be a great opportunity to continue reading where the Christine Miller series left off. As a 26-year-old woman, I can relate to this book and see the own Sierra Jensen in me. No matter what age, you will enjoy...
I'd heard so much about the Christy Miller Collection and how great it was for young girls. I'd been looking for a book to recommend to the younger ones. So when I got the chance to review the Sierra Jensen Collection (a somewhat continuation of the Christy Miller ones), I thought it would be a great opportunity to read the book before recommending. I'd heard it was a great book for teen girls so imagine my surprise when from the very first...
When I saw that my favorite author, Robin Jones Gunn, had some books up for review, I jumped at the change. I was a huge Christy Miller series fan growing up, but I have never read the Sierra Jensen books. I was excited to download the book to my Kindle and get to read it. The Sierra Jensen Collection, Volume 1 represents the first 3 books in the 12 books series.Collection 1 follow Sierra's story as she grows through growing pains of a...
This collection of 3 books introduces Sierra Jensen, a fairly typical teenager returning from a mission to Europe. She and the other characters in the books are falling in and out of love, making friends, and trying to see God's hand in their lives. What I liked: I am not, I think, the target audience here, so as I read I asked myself, "Would I give this book to my daughter?" Well, she's too young, but you know, when she's older. And the...
