    Since Joe recently pointed out to me that it seems like these books have no plot, I will try to start this review with a plot summary.Christy wants to be a good friend to Katie, so she asks Katie what she'd like to do. Katie wants to spend a weekend with their HS Ski Club in Tahoe. Christy agrees. They sell candy bars to raise money for the ($150) trip. There is a slight non-fight when Christy's rich Aunt Marti immediately buys all her candy bars AND a new wardrobe for Tahoe.Katie and Christy are also being encouraged by their church to convert anyone they can to Christianity. Christy quickly makes a 'hit list' of people in her life that she wants to 'save.' This list includes her boss! Her boss takes it well when Christy tries to 'put Jesus in his heart,' but I guess it's too much to expect for a Christian YA novel to illustrate what people's REAL reaction is to proselytizing Christians. o.O That might be too graphic or intense for a Christy Miller book.When Katie and Christy go to Tahoe, Christy is approached/accepted by three popular rich girls. They are mean girls who insult Katie. Christy is torn. Should she be friends with these mean girls with the hopes of turning them into Christians? Or should she just stay friends with her sweet, loyal old friend Katie?Things come to a head when Christy uses some "mouthwash" found in the popular girls' bathroom which turns out to be vodka with green food dye in it. Katie reports the girls to the teachers, Christy doesn't back her up, blah blah blah. Happy ending, popular girls get punished, Katie and Christy are true friends again, and Christy learns not to try so hard to fit in.Neither girl is successful in bringing anyone to Jesus.No boys or boy problems in this book, which is kind of refreshing and kind of boring. At the very end, Christy gets a coconut shipped to her from Todd (who is now living in Hawaii and she hasn't heard from him in two months, the putz). She takes this as a sign that he loves her, or something.

    True Friends, Christy Miller Book #7 ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ You can read the original single book, but its now out of print!Or you can read the one in the volume three along with Starry Night and Seventeen Wishes;)Summary of this amazing book: An adventurous ski trip, a strained friendship, and a mysterious package all lead to a deeper understanding of what makes true friends. New twists and turns abound in Christy Miller's life as she finds herself on a ski slope in the arms of a handsome ski instructor.My review:This is another great Christy Miller Book! While Todd is off surfing in Hawaii, Katie decides she wants to try something new. Skiing. She talks Christy into joining the ski club with her and that’s how they end up going on a ski trip to Lake Tahoe. Things don’t go so well and Christy and Katie discover a secret the other girls from school are keeping. Christy and Katie try to show the directors what’s happening but they fail to do so when the girls find out they are caught. Katie and Christy aren’t the best of friends after some misunderstandings and such. They finally make up to each other and decide to head home early to avoid any more trouble. Christy and Katie find an awesome *package* in the mail and that was such a good part!!!!!!!!! The book ends with Rick and Doug visiting, Rick and Christy aren’t exactly the best of friends in this one because of what happened the year before. I would rate this book 5/5 stars since I enjoyed it very much, it was filled with action and adventure!Favourite Characters:-Christy Miller the main girl and her friend Katie!Least Favourite Character;-Definitely the three sassy rude girls.Favourite Part:-When they get the surprise package in the mail from who knows who? 😉Least Favourite part:-When the girls hide the things from the director and they never get caught.Negative Content:-There is mentions of *SPOILERS!* vodka.

    The seventh book in the series takes a different, and maybe a somewhat refreshing turn, as Christy no longer has a guy to prop her up. Just what she needs, if you ask me. She realizes what a friend she has in Katie and the two go on a ski trip together -- of course, finding their friendship tested along the way.The storyline is quieter -- the source of tension is almost silly -- but delving into the meaning of friendship is something Robin Jones Gunn does best.

    i have learned that no matter what happens, your true friends will stick with you and support you and tell you the true honesty about the styation, as unttrue friends will give up on you and judt go away and leave you in a big heap of mess. also, God is your closest friend--no matter WHAT!

    Even as an adult, I enjoyed finishing this series I started as a teen. Robin's style of writing pulls you into the story. All the exciting and even confusing emotions a teen faces comes to life in these books about Christy and her friends. I think it's great how Robin emphasizes the importance of loving God and putting Him first in your life. It's a great series that takes the focus off the silly drama we tend to face in our teen years and puts it on centering our life around God.

    These books are really pretty enjoyable, if not a little predictable at some points. But I still like reading about Christy Miller and how she manages to stumble through life and come out okay in the end. I felt a little sorry for Katie in this book and thought she was just a tad bit under-treated by Christy.*Taken from my book reviews blog:

    Slightly different than previous books in the series, True Friends is yet another good young adult novel from Robin Jones Gunn. It'll be interesting to see where the story arc goes from here.EDIT: See my review of the entire series at:

    This is not my favorite in the series just because there are some cringey and awkward moments but I do like how the friendship between Christy and Katie is emphasized.

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