Spring Break Feature: Lindell High School Series

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.

Series Synopsis

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.

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I’m a Fresno, CA native. After studying at Biola University, I received my MLIS (Masters in Library Science) from San Jose State University. I live with my mom, poet Kimberly Vargas Agnese, and serve as her unofficial agent. We reside at MeadowArc, a food forest in its infancy. I am called to, and passionate about, purity. In fact, the name Agnes means “pure.” Before I was born, my mom felt led to include the name Agnes in her name, and in the names of her children. My full, hyphenated name includes 26 letters (but not the whole alphabet).
