Happenstance...or God's Great Plan?

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."

--Robin Jones Gunn

Excerpts-
  • Chapter One SIERRA JENSEN GAZED out the train window at the cold, wet English countryside. In an hour she and her friends would be back at Carnforth Hall with the other ministry teams that had spent the past week in various European countries. She wedged her hands between her crossed legs, trying to warm them against her jeans. Endless pastures, frosted with winter's ice, flashed past her window. Sierra let out a sigh.

    "What are you thinking?" Katie asked, uncurling from her comfy position on the train seat next to Sierra. Katie's red hair swished as she tilted her head to make eye contact with Sierra. Even though Katie was two years older than Sierra and they had met only two weeks ago, they had become close during the week they had just spent together in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

    "About going back to the States," Sierra said. Her silver, dangling earrings chimed as she turned to Katie and smiled her wide, easy smile, but she was really looking past Katie. In the seat across the aisle from them, their team leader, Doug, was sitting next to his girlfriend, Tracy.

    "This whole trip went too fast." Katie folded her arms and settled back against the upholstered seat. "I'm not ready to go home yet."

    "I know," Sierra agreed. "Me neither." She noticed that Doug was now slipping his arm across the back of the seat. Tracy slid closer to him.

    "I'd like to come back," Katie said. "Maybe next summer."

    "Me too," Sierra said, watching Tracy snuggle up to Doug.

    "It would be great if out whole team could be together again for another trip."

    "Me too," Sierra said. Tracy was tilting her heartshaped faced toward Doug's, giving him a delicate smile that, by the look on his face, was melting him to the core.

    "What do you mean, 'me too'? Of course you would be on the team." Katie looked over her shoulder to see what had distracted Sierra. Turning back to Sierra, Katie leaned forward and quietly said, "Don't they just make you sick?"

    "Katie," Sierra said in a hushed voice, "I thought you guys were all best friends and had been for years--you, Doug, Tracy, and Christy. Why would it make you sick to see those two together?"

    "We're all best friends. It's just...well, look at them! They're totally in love."

    "I know," Sierra said, casting another quick glance at the couple who were now talking softly and looking deeply into each other's eyes. "I can't imagine ever being in Tracy's place and having a guy look at me like that."

    "Are you kidding?" Katie pulled back and let her bright green eyes do a quick head-to-toe scan of Sierra. "Have you ever looked in a mirror, girl? First, you have the hair going for you. You have great hair! Wild, blond, curly. Very exotic."

    "Haven't you noticed?" Sierra said, tugging at a curly loop of her long hair. "Straight, sleek hair happens to be in right now."

    "Oh sure, this week. Wait a few days. Everyone will be running out for perms so they can look just like you. And your smile happens to be award-winning, in case you didn't know. Blue-gray eyes that change with the weather are also quite popular. A few freckles. That's good. Fantastic clothes, all very original. And I don't ever want to hear you complain about your body."

    "What body? I'm shaped like a tomboy."

    "Better to be shaped like a tomboy than a fullback."

    "You're not shaped like a fullback," Sierra protested.

    "Okay, a halfback."

    "You're both beautiful," Stephen, the German guy on their team, inserted into the conversation. He was sitting directly across from them and had appeared to be sleeping.

    Sierra felt her cheeks blush, realizing Stephen had overheard their conversation. He...
