Publisher Comments:

College on the Horizon She's the bold, free-spirited type. She's young, she's fun, and she's following God. She's Sierra Jensen-Christy Miller's good friend-in her senior year of high school with college fast approaching! In this fourth volume of the popular Sierra Jensen series, Sierra's life becomes a roller coaster of decisions as she strives to Hold on Tightthrough choices about friendship, honesty, and college. Then, with high school graduation Closer Than Ever, she eagerly plans for Paul's visit and can't wait to know where everyone will be going to college. Finally, in Take My Hand, a misunderstanding with Paul means Sierra must start college hurt and confused. Is the damage to their relationship as final as it feels? Christy Miller knows a good friend when she meets her, and so will you- Sierra Jensen is better than ever! Hold On Tight Decisions, decisions. That's all Sierra's life is lately. Eager to escape the stress, she can't wait to join her brother and a few friends on a road trip as they visit a university in Southern California and tack on a day at an amusement park. It'll be great! But right from the start, things go wrong. And suddenly Sierra's trip is full of more twists and turns than anyroller coaster. There's only one way to handle a wild ride like this: hold on tight, trust God to keep her safe-and scream for all she's worth. Closer Than Ever Paul is coming home! What's more, he's coming to Sierra's graduation party. She spends every spare moment planning-after all, his visit has to be perfect. Then, more good news! Sierra and Randy are accepted into Rancho Corona University . Sierra couldn't be happier-until she hears Vicki hasn't received an acceptance letter. Does that mean Sierra and her friends won't be in college together? But the worst news of all comes on graduation night. There's been a terrible accident. With limited information, Sierra fears the worst. Can she let go and trust her dreams to God? Take My Hand What a year! Not only is Sierra starting college, but her older sister, Tawni, is engaged-to Paul's older brother, Jeremy! As the two families prepare for the wedding, Sierra's excitement grows. At last, she and Paul will be together-face-to-face! But their longed-for reunion is marred by a costly misunderstanding that turns Paul away and sends Sierra off to college hurt and confused. Only the gentle wisdom of Sierra's good friend, Christy Miller, helps her face a difficult decision. But is it too late for Sierra and Paul? Story Behind the Book "After writing the twelve-book Christy Miller series for teens, a new teen character showed up on the pages of the final novel. Her name was Sierra Jensen, and she was such a compelling character that readers began asking for a series about Sierra in order to hear more about her life choices. Our family had just moved to Portland at the time, and I found it easy to picture a sixteen-year-old like Sierra shopping at the local vintage clothing stores, hanging out with friends at a garage band concert, and serving at the homeless shelter on weekends." -Robin Jones Gunn
