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.

Just One Perfect Night

Katy gets the chance of a lifetime—she’s been elected to the homecoming court, and there are rumors her crush, Bryce, might ask her to go with him. What could be more perfect? For one unforgettable night she would be able to experience life as many other teenage girls do—a stunning gown, gorgeous hair, jewelry, and makeup. Except Katy’s Mennonite community prohibits dancing as well as fancy dresses and makeup, and her father would not approve. When an opportunity arises that could allow her to attend without her father knowing, Katy must decide: Will she hold tight to her convictions, or will she sacrifice her principles for one special night?
