"I Don't Dance" by Jesseca Wheaton

About this book:

  Sometimes it takes a a sunset to show you what really matters in life. But it's the sunrise that bring the promise of a new beginning.
  Ty and Jen have been friends for nearly as long as anyone can remember. But when Ty goes off to college and leaves her behind, he has to face the reality that he cares for her as more then just a friend.
  As graduations approaches and with only one summer left before he begins basic training, Ty must make a decision. Military life is never easy; is it fair to force it on the one he loves?
  In the midst of wrestling with the question and coming to the realization that summer is quickly drawing to a close, Ty struggles to face questions he cannot answer, and is forced to examine his own heart.
  Is it possible that God has a future for him with Jen? Or will the summer close with only memories of days gone by?
  Their relationship would be old fashioned. But that was okay. Because old fashioned and whimsical fit perfectly with a southern summer.

My personal Rating-

Well this was sweeter than sweet tea! This was such a lovely and refreshing love story that had the unique element of just being in the guy’s point of view that was really quite sweet to see as there was no inappropriate thoughts, actions, or even mentions, which I highly appreciated. Great Spiritual Content as well and I loved seeing two college aged young adults be so sure in their faiths. For anyone wanting to read a sweet (yes, I know I keep saying that, but it is!) young adult love story with great faith content, you might really think about this one. :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
