After This Summer, Katy's Life May Change Forever Katy is looking forward to the best summer ever. Her closest friend, Shelby, comes to stay with her when an accident forces her to miss her family's mission trip. But when Katy's aunt faces a serious illness and needs the girls to run the fabric store, Katy's plans fall apart. Suddenly what should have been a summer of relaxation becomes filled with long hours at the shop. But then a Mennonite boy visits her community for the summer. His presence complicates her life, as do her feelings for Bryce, her non-Mennonite crush. Katy has several decisions to make by the time August arrives, the largest being whether she will attend school in the fall and follow her dreams, or continue on in her Mennonite life to help her family. Katy struggles to choose between the two worlds she loves, but the final decision may be out of her hands.
Katy's Decision (Katy Lambright series #4)
Once again I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this book. I love the simple way of life that Katy has. Not that she isn't busy, because she is, but without all the 'worldly' things taking away her focus, I am envious of her. And Katy wouldn't be too happy with me about that! I really love how close Katy is with her father and her new stepmother. The importance of family really comes through in this book. The friendship between Katy and Shelby only grows stronger in this book. It was so nice to see 2 teenage girls giving of their time for other people. What a great thing to teach everyone. I don't want to give too much away on what happens, but Katy is forced with many decisions in this book and as the reader I was hanging on the edge of my seat to see what she would choose. I didn't want to put the book down at all! If you've read any or all of the previous books in this series, RUN out and get this book today because you will love it!
Katy is a wonderful selfless role model for people of all ages!
