Ever since high school, Katie Weldon has wondered what it would be like to be Rick Doyle’s girlfriend. As a college senior she’s about to find out. 

In the swirl of Katie’s upgraded dating life, she receives an unexplained bouquet, an unexpected call from her mother, an unprecedented girls’ night out with Christy, and an unhappy moment when her beloved car, Baby Hummer, takes its last wheeze. Rick’s new roommate, Eli, complicates things by inviting Katie on a midnight jaunt to see a meteor shower. Under a canopy of stars Katie grasps a new view of the universe—out there as well as up close. 

As if she had nothing else to do, on a whim, she singlehandedly starts a fund-raising campaign for clean water for Africa. With Rick caught up in making plans for the future, how will Katie navigate her way through the remainder of her college career with no money, no transportation, no spare time and no idea what God is up to?

    " It was a pretty good book that was about Katie and her collage year.And her job and all the girls she meets and with her boyfriend,Rick.On a scale from 1-10 I would give it a 7 1/2.I would recomend it to some of my friends (that are girls). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 9/1/2013

    " this book... in my opinion... was much better than the first!! the first one was good but this one held my attention and I couldn't put it down!! :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krystal | 5/19/2013

    " As I said, I love these books! My only complaint is that since the seris started, the characters have only aged 7 years and I have aged 21! What's up with that?!? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alycia | 12/26/2012

    " Robin Jones Gunn always has the best young adult / teen series. This series may even be better than the Christy Miller series. It is the book series that every Christy Miller fan has been waiting to read for a long time! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 8/30/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 2/18/2012

    " Nice to hear more about Katie, Rick, Christy & the gang. Reading from Katie's perspective is sure different from Christy's. "
