Book Review - Departures by Robin Jones Gunn

This book contains two novellas featuring Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen written by one of my favorite authors Robin Jones Gunn. In Now Boarding at Gate 10 Christy and her famliy travel to Wisconsin to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of her grandparents. Christy has broken up with her boyfriend Todd and her heart is still sad over the decision. In Wisconsin she reconnects with Matthew, a friend she grew up with and had a crush on. Christy reflects on relationships through watching her parents, grandparentsand what she has learned about God.

In the Event of a Water Landing tells the story of Sierra Jensen who takes a trip to Montana with her friend Jana and her brother Gregg and Gregg's friend Tim. They are going to stay at Jana and Gregg's parent's cabin on the lake. Jana interests have turned to boys and getting a boyfriend but Sierra isn't sure she is ready for that yet. Sierra spends her vacation thinking about dating, how her friendship with Jana is changing and making the right choices with God's help.

I enjoyed both stories very much even though I am not a teen and have not read the other books in each series. Both were fun reads that discussed important life issues in a positive way.
