Sunfire Preteen/Teen Romances

"Sunfire was the name of a series of 32 young adult books put out by Scholastic, Inc. during the 1980s. The books always took place during an interesting point in American history and featured a girl who was usually ahead of her time in her attitudes and actions. The basic plot usually involved her being caught up in the particular historic event of the time while also having to choose between two suitors (rarely, this number might change). Almost always, the winning suitor was the one who approved of the heroine's liberal attitudes and who was kind of a rebel in his own right--not the family-approved kind who offered mere comfort and stability. All in all, the books were good clean fun for a young girl..."

Susanne I can't remember which of these I read, but I loved them as a kid!


message 2: by Meryl (new)

Meryl Oh my...do I remember these growing up!! My sister and were on a quest to own every one of them. Thanks for the walk down memory lane!


message 3: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey I absolutely loved these books back when I was in middle school! I only read/ had access to ten or twelve of them back then (I've listed the 3 I remember as being my favorites!), but I am getting ready to read/re-read the whole series (major thank you's to the ILL department at my library!) Yeah!


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

My favorite series of books from when I was in Middle School and I'm currently attempting to reread!


message 5: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey F.Y.I.

Some of these titles are available through Paperbackswap.com if anyone is wanting to re-read them but is having trouble finding them. I have been posting all of my copies on there once I am done re-reading them.

message 7: by Sheri S. (last edited Aug 03, 2010 09:14AM) (new)

Sheri S. I loved these books, too, and owned all of them except for Elizabeth! I am kicking myself now as I got rid of them when I moved away from home!!! I am so glad to see others who read these, I don't think there were many of us hence the reason they went out of print!!!


message 8: by Karen (new)

Karen I'm glad that I found this list. I still have all my copies, although they are worn (and well loved). My favorite was Joanna.

message 12: by Dani (last edited May 17, 2013 12:23PM) (new)

Dani I have been looking for these books everywhere. Thanks to the Web and Ebay I have been able to get the ones I really wanted to read as a teen. Starting with Nicole!


message 13: by Susan (new)

Susan Loved these books when I was a teenager. My favorite was Jessica!

I was thinking the same thing as I was going through the list LOL!!


message 15: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Gordy I wish I could get my hands on this whole set again!


message 16: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Amanda and Susannah were my favorites. Probably because they were my firsts. A friend let me "borrow" them and I never gave them back! Re read them all lots!


message 17: by Natasha (new)

Natasha I've gradually been buying (mostly from Better World Books) and now have the whole set. I'm rereading in order and finding new favorites among the series!


message 18: by Nola (new)

Nola Byrum Please don't limit your children to "clean" books. They miss out on so much.


message 19: by Joy (new)

Joy Endreshak This list brings back so many memories. I loved these books! I've even re-bought a few off of eBay. I so miss having (nearly) the entire series.


message 20: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Not gonna lie, I have the entire series stored in the basement for when my daughter is old enough. I loved these, and bonus, I passed a lot of American History tests based off the settings in these books.
