Departures by Robin Jones Gunn is a unique book that includes two books in one. Christy Miller, Now Boarding at Gate 10 is a story about a young girl on a self discovery, making decisions that will effect her life. It is a refreshing story of a young Christian girl who wants to do the right thing.
The second story, Sierra Jensen, In the Event of a Water landing is about a group of teens who are finding their way. Sierra also wants to make right decisions, struggling to know what is best.
I really love the Christian message of this story and the positive role model Christy and Sierra play. One thing that was a little dissappointing was the ending of Christy Miller's story. It seemed to end abruptly leaving you to want a little more of the story but the author pulls you directly back into the book in the second story. I love the segway to connect the two books. I would recommend this to pre-teen, and young ladies everywhere. It is a nice, easy read.

I've not forgotten the blog or my blog followers. I've just been really busy lately. I decided to make and sell Survival Bracelets and sales have taken off. I have been making bracelets non-stop for weeks and still have several orders to fill. Here is a sample of a few that I have made. If anyone is interested in purchasing one leave me a comment and a way that I can contact you. They are $9.00 + shipping.
