A satisfying read! July 6 2006
By Armchair Interviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This collection includes the first three books in the Sierra Jensen series written by Robin Jones Gunn.

Only You, Sierra introduces sixteen-year-old Sierra. Flying home from a mission trip in the UK, Sierra has met several new friends, including Katie and Christy, who readers of Robin's Christy Miller series will recognize. Normally outgoing and adventurous, Sierra is surprised to feel anxiety about her family's move to Portland, Oregon during the time she was away. A new home, new school, and potential new love interest challenge Sierra to reevaluate beliefs about herself that she has long taken for granted.

In Your Dreams finds Sierra watching over Granna Mae for a few days while her family is out of town. While it's difficult for Sierra to see her Granna's memory come and go, what seems to be a simple responsibility becomes more than Sierra bargains for when Granna Mae receives a call saying she needs immediate surgery. Meanwhile, Sierra tries to find a part-time job and wonders why, when she was the most popular girl at her old school, she is having such a difficult time making new friends in Portland.

Don't You Wish takes Sierra and her sister Tawni to spend Easter break at the beach with Christy, Katie, and their friends. When Tawni hits it off immediately with Jeremy, and even Katie pairs off with Antonio, an Italian exchange student, Sierra struggles with being jealous and feeling left out. She wants a boyfriend too. She tries to have fun and even learns to surf. But when Sierra witnesses Christy and Todd, to her the perfect couple, going through a difficult time in their relationship, she realizes everyone has struggles in their life. And she learns, as 1 Tim 6:6 states, that godliness with contentment is the greatest gain.

"Have you ever felt as if you were caught between two lives? The one you're living, and the one you wish you were living?" Sierra asks Christy.

Armchair Interviews says: Readers of all ages will understand Sierra's feelings and be ministered to by the timeless truths God reveals to her throughout this collection.

Lessons learned Nov. 10 2011
By Chrystal Mahan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
All books are intended for young adult readers. Being 36 years old, I would have to say that even as an adult I found them a lot of fun to read. I really like how they all have growing, coming of age, life lessons written in such a manner that many can related and understand. I think a lot of young adults can learn a lesson or two from these books.

It's not for everyone, I guess. June 27 2013
By diykindagirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Okay, not gonna lie, I did not enjoy this series. It is highly unlikely that I would have ever picked it up on my own, and I most definitely wouldn't have bothered finishing. (I used to feel compelled to finish every book I started...now, I think my time is far too valuable to waste on a book I am not enjoying.) The only reason I read it was for the Blogging for Books program. And it took me months to work up the gumption to get it over with.
You know, I like Young Adult fiction. And I like Christian fiction. So what about this left me repulsed?
Well, for starters, I disliked the main character. I suppose she might have been a realistic portrayal of a teenager going through a major transition, but man she was irritating.
Also, the story felt abrupt. And unbelievable at times. And...silly. Silly because that was not the attempt. There's lighthearted fun silly books, and there's books that are not intended to be silly but are. Being Christian fiction does not automatically place it in the category of good meaningful book. Mostly I kinda wanted to gag. Sorry.

Good read for all ages - exceeded expectations Jan. 25 2013
By Fun_to_tell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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 page I was hooked! And I'm 21! I rushed over to buy the rest of the collection. 

I could absolutely relate to Sierra. Yes, even at 21. Her character was real. She asked herself questions everyone must've asked themselves once. I mean, seriously, I was shocked as to how so "humanly" she acted in situations, especially those regarding Paul. I'm not so sure what to make of Paul yet. The rest will tell. But he's got quite an interesting personality. I have to say, Paul is a huge reason why you'll keep turning the pages.

It was quite encouraging to see characters ranging from 16 - 21 so conscious of their spiritual growth. So willing to serve God and give their all. Willing to live in purity and to the Glory of God! I was encouraged!

What bothered me however, was the fact that Sierra's family seemed a little too perfect at times. Especially the way her parents reacted to certain things she discussed with them. I also didn't like the way Sierra's grandmother's illness was addressed at first. It was also quite strange how Sierra claimed her and her grandmother were very close but I hardly saw that in the novel.

Overall, I would recommend this book to ANYONE. No matter the age, christian or not. I think everyone has a little something to learn from it. If you're looking for an easy read filled with laughs but also deeply touching moments, while being encouraged in your christian walk, this is it.

A strong follow-up to the Christy Miller series Oct. 24 2012
By Kristine Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Sierra is a typical 16-year-old struggling to figure out life as she returns home to Oregon from a mission trip to England when she met Christy, thus linking the two series. Though I liked the first series better, Sierra is the character I can relate to best out of any book I've ever read. She's not quiet. She's not meek and mild. She's not a girly-girl (even though deep down she is). This is a real girl learning to balance her life with God's desires for her. While Christy was the girl I wanted to be, Sierra will always be the girl I am.

This is definitely recommended for fans of the first series. There are mentions throughout the series of Christy, letting you know what's going on in her life between her last book and her college books. But I would also recommend it for those like me who may not have been able to relate to Christy quite as well as we would have liked. Sierra's entire journey is perfect, and it was awesome last year to be able to catch up with her in Love Finds You in Sunset Beach Hawaii.
