WARNING: I get a tiny bit sappy in this review. Enjoy, because IT'S NEVER HAPPENING AGAIN. I hope.

Christy spends a week as a camp counselor at a Christian summer camp and has a bit of a flirt with another counselor.

1.) Ginger eyes: Jones Gunn keeps describing this character over and over as having "ginger eyes." I know what "ginger" means re: hair - red hair. But the little girl can't possibly have red eyes, can she? Ginger root is a brown/golden color, perhaps the girl has tawny eyes? o.O Jones

Seventeen Wishes by Robin Jones Gunn is the ninth book in the Christy Miller series.

In this book, Christy volunteers to be a counselor through her church at Summer camp (Camp Wildwood) with her best friend Katie. but at the last minute Katie backs out, so Christy is all alone babysitting a bunch of rowdy fifth-grade girls.

And can I just say, this book is SO much like volunteering at Vacation Bible School, except it's both boys and girls in a group and you don't stay overnight. The kids are alw

Todd continues to annoy me. I'm not real clear on this whole defrauding concept. Is this Puritan times?

Seventeen Wishes is written by Robin Jones Gunn, this book is a Christian based, romantic novel about a girl named Christy Miller.
Christy Miller goes to summer camp as a counsular to boy-crazy, cute, little sixth graders. She has toruble talking to them about God becasue instead they rather talk about the boy counsular Jaeson who flirts with Christy. This week is packed with fun time, romance, and deeper relationships with the girls and God. Summer camp was a blast making new friends and creati

Another light-hearted read about the lovable Christy Miller. I don't know how Christy manages to get herself into some of these situations. Seems hindsight is always better. There were a couple parts of this book that I thought were a bit unrealistic, but I still enjoyed reading it and of course, I always want to know what is going to happen next.

This one takes place at a camp, and contains the usual hijinx that happen at such a place. Just as fun, entertaining, and readable as the first eight books.

Read this christian books series as a tween. High school drama with an emphasis on the characters' relationship with Christ.

I loved this book, and I think the part where one of the campers accepts Christ is awesome. Robin Jones Gunn has proved to be one of my favourite authors.
