I know it’s her story but I am so deep into the series that I feel it’s mine too! I love the Christy and Todd story and I get nervous every time she does something that could change it.

I read the Christy Miller books during a really stressful time, and they were like a calm in the storm. I have learned so much from them, too! When Doug told Christy that godliness is beautiful, it was an entirely new concept to me!

Christy Miller's best friend Katie always seems to be dragging her into crazy schemes. First, she persuades Christy to go on a disastrous ski trip, and now, in SEVENTEEN WISHES, the ninth installment in Robin Jones Gunn's Christy Miller series, she manages to talk Christy into becoming a summer camp counselor. At least Christy is looking forward to the time they will get to spend together --- until Katie's family refuses to let her go.

Now Christy is all alone with a group of rambunctious young girls --- certainly not the way she had envisioned spending her summer, especially with Todd having just returned from Hawaii. Her fantasy of leading a group of sweet, well-behaved girls quickly begins to fade as she meets her summer companions. Not only are they unruly, but many of them begin to reveal that they have much more serious problems, and Christy is not sure if she's ready --- or even able --- to help them.

When they are not wreaking havoc, Christy's campers are busy meddling in her life. The attention of super-cute counselor Jaeson has not escaped their notice, and the girls are determined to set Christy up with the perfect summer fling. When she's forced to tell them that she doesn't really have a boyfriend, the campers go into overdrive attempting to unite this seemingly well-matched couple. While she feels embarrassed initially, and is still quite loyal to Todd, Christy begins to enjoy the extra attention. With moonlit picnics and boat rides, Christy is happy to finally experience the romantic side of a relationship that she never got from Todd.

But maybe it really is too good to be true. Christy starts to wonder if perhaps it is all a dream, or even just a game he's playing with her. And, of course, Christy still must fulfill her duties as a counselor, which she discovers is a much more serious role than she once imagined. Will Christy realize this in time to make an impact? And will she ever wake up from her dreamy romance?

SEVENTEEN WISHES is a nice interlude in the Christy Miller series. While the book does not advance Christy's story much, it does introduce an entire cast of new and interesting characters. The story takes place apart from the regular cast and familiar settings of previous books, which many readers may find refreshing. Gunn discusses some significant issues, from the importance of being a role model, to the dangers of getting caught up in a new romance. Christy Miller fans will not be disappointed and will be ready to get back to the usual ongoing drama in Christy's life.

I just recently read this book and i think it is just o.k. One reason i'm not exactly the biggest fan of this book is because some of the information in it is not accurate. For an example the part about Stephanie's past. In Seventeen Wishes it was said that Stephanie's parents had to leave China imediately because they would have to abort their second child. That is however wrong because first of all in China it is not required to abort the second child. There is an option of paying a fee for having another child. Also in the more rural parts of China the rule is not enforced as much. Another option is that they can have the child of there is four years in between each children, or if the parents have no parents of their own still living. Another thing i have found not accurate in this part of the book is that it said that Christianity has to be practiced in and underground church. That is ridiculously wrong. I am a Christian and i am a Chinese born in America. I have recently moved here to China and I go to church freely. My gradparents went to church when they were young too. So, I don't this that it's possible that at the time this book was written that anything such as not being allowed to go to church is true. I don't know where the author got this information. To me this is quite offensive because to all the people that have read this book, there would be a wrong impression left on China and it's culture. I hope to the people who read this review (which i don't believe would be many) will realize that this is not quite accurate. I hope that in the future Ms. Robin Jones Gunn completely understands the information before putting it into a book.

a brilliant book , which includes God. A book every teen should read. It expresses what every camp romance is about . Short but sweet.

In Seventeen Wishes Christy Miller goes through a lot of hard ships and has to make many decisions and always has to turn to God for help. Christy Miller is seventeen years old and has to go to a summer camp and be a counselor for a bunch of wild fifth grade girls. While Christy is there she meets a really cute boy, Jaeson, which she tries to be around the whole time, but through this there is Todd. Todd is a boy that she had met on Newport Beach a couple of years before. She had really liked him, but their relation had gone nowhere. They were just really good friends.

My favorite part of the book was when Aunt Marti had a surprise birthday party for her and all her beach friends and everyone she had met was there. Then she made seventeen wishes. "Christy silently made seventeen wishes. And all of them started with Todd" (Gunn, 151).
I think this book is similar to my life in many different ways. One way it is similar to my life is that Christy is a teenage girl going through many hard times and has to make difficult decisions. Christy is always facing things that any teenage girl would face. I also think this is similar to my life because when she goes through those kinds of hard ships she always turns to God for help. When she is having trouble then she will pray about it and ask God for help and guidance. I do that too when I don't know what decision to make I turn to my family, friends, and God for help just like Christy. "At this moment, Christy knew His [God] forever peace (Gunn, 151).
While I was reading this book I saw some things that Robin Jones Gunn uses in her writing that I think is a very good idea to use in mine. When Gunn writes she puts Christy's thoughts in the story whenever she is thinking something. I like that a lot because I think it really shows the reader what Christy is really thinking. Gunn puts what Christy is thinking like someone is talking, but she doesn't put the thought in quotations, she just put it in Italics. I really like that a lot about her writing that she does in the Christy Miller Series. "I'm glad some things don't change. I wish I could be this age, on the beach, with these friends, for the next fifty years. I don't want things to change. Ever" (Gunn, 150).
I think this book is a lot about Christy and mostly about the hardships that she goes through and the decisions that she has to make. I think Seventeen Wishes is mainly for teenage girls so that they can realize that every teenage girl is going to go through the same hardships and decisions that they have to. I think the book is also a lot about Christy and her friends. The book is a lot about Todd and Jaeson, the boy she met at camp, and that decisions she has to make with them.
