Back in February, I had the opportunity to read the Lindell High School trilogy, by Claire Nance. I came across book three in a GoodReads group, and Claire was kind enough to provide me with ecopies of each book. I was hooked from chapter one!
At first, I enjoyed the lightness of the teen romance stories, which captured and held my attention. However, I am happy to report that, as the series progressed—especially in book three— the books became deeper and more meaningful. I was particularly moved by a scene in the last book!
The last book emphasizes God’s unconditional love and the value He places on us. What a perfect theme for Easter!
This week, spring break, I’m doing a series feature of Claire Nance’s Life at Lindell High. I’ll be posting a review of each book, ending with an interview with the author.
The series follows Dee Anderson through her high school experience, as she navigates dates and relationships. Stories have a pretty strong boy-girl emphasis, as well as light spiritual themes (books one and two). For me, book three was the really satisfying book in the series, but I had a lot of fun reading the first two books, as well!
As a note, Dee’s mascot is a Warrior and her drill team uniform imitates traditional Indigenous American regalia. Although this is historically accurate (in line with Claire Nance’s school mascot), I do feel that the practice of using Indigenous Americans as a mascot is very wrong.
