I follow the discussion list for PUBYAC. That's all about programming, books, etc. for librarians that deal with children and teens in public libraries. Anyway, a few weeks ago someone posted about the Sunfire Romance series and it totally struck a chord with me! I had forgotten all about that series, and yet, they were books that I was totally hooked on in middle school! I promptly went and ILLed the only available one in our library system and I just finished rereading it. I feel like I just reexperienced a little of my childhood!
In the Sunfire Romance series, each book's title was the main character's name (i.e. Joanna, Danielle, Sabrina, etc.) and each was set in a different period of America's history. In each book, the main character had interesting role based within her time period and where she lived in the U.S. (one helped with the Pony Express, one was a spy in the Rev. War, one was a movie star in CA) and she met two boys. One slow and steady boy that grew to love her...and one flashy, bad boy that also loved her! In each book (very formulaic, but fabulous when I was a tween) the girl had to eventually choose which boy to be with...and it usually ended up being the steady guy...ahhh. I loved this series!!
My favorites were Roxanne, Sabrina, Emily, and Megan.
Did anyone else read these??
