Publishers Description "Saturday, October 22 " "My life changed today. It's as if I got up this morning as one person and will go to bed as someone else. Okay, maybe it's not THAT drastic. But I'm so excited I'm not sure I'll ever go to sleep tonight. Josh Miller asked me to marry him " First she "kissed dating goodbye." Now, several years later, Caitlin O'Conner is getting married-to the guy she's loved all along, Josh Miller It's her senior year of college, and she has seven months to plan her wedding...but according to Josh's mom, that's not enough time. Meanwhile, Caitlin's roommate, Liz, has ditched her to move in with a boyfriend. Her new roommate and old friend, Jenny, is toying with anorexia again, and just when Caitlin needs her most, Beanie heads off to a New York City design school. On top of all this, an issue from Josh' s past rocks Caitlin's emotions. Can she handle it all? True to form, Caitlin is more concerned with following God than having the perfect wedding. But it "is" her big day. Can Caitlin have a lovely ceremony without spending a small fortune? Will she remember it's the marriage-and not the wedding-that lasts forever? Story Behind the Book "My teenage years remain vivid in my mind. It was a turbulent time full of sharp contrasts- love and hate, pain and pleasure, trust and doubt. Then, just as I reached my peak of questioning, rebelling, and seeking, I found God. And I found Him in a really big way My life turned completely around and has, thankfully, never turned back. Hopefully this story will touch and change hearts-speaking to teen girls right where they live, reminding readers that God is alive and well and ready to be intimately involved in their lives right now Caitlin provides a very positive role model for girls. And her wedding is a great way to teach them about the things that really matter in life-their relationship with God and their willingness to be used by Him."

More About Melody Carlson
I started writing "professionally" about twenty years ago. I quickly learned that I'm a fast writer and, as a result, I've published more than 200 books--with more than 6 million books sold. And it stuns me to write out those numbers today. How did that happen? I've been told I'm in the top twenty "most prolific authors" of all time. Although I'm not certain this is true, it does make me wonder--and I wonder how other authors (in previous generations) managed to write so many books without the use of a computer. Last year I won a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times. But that doesn't mean I'm ready to retire. I have lots more books coming out and new ideas popping into my head all the time. I write from a studio right next to the house I share with my husband in Oregon. My dog Audrey goes to work with me every morning. I have to say...it's a pretty good life...and I am grateful to God for every bit of it.

Reviews - What do customers think about I Do (Diary of a Teenage Girl)?
A nice ending! Oct 5, 2008
Throughout the series I had been waiting anxiously for this one and enjoyed it much more than I had even hoped. In the past ones Caitlin had been very...I don't know, annoying. While I appreciated her faith and views on life, I didn't like how sometimes she came off as too preachy. In this one she starts to loosen up a bit and it was very fun to read! Would totally recommend this book and others by this author!
I do! Sep 30, 2007
I can not keep the books in my classroom! As soon as one is returned it is checked out again. High school students love the stories!
Ok book but too much Christianity Aug 28, 2007
This was an ok book. The story was really good but the way the author kept writing about God was annoying and very immature. If you just ignore all the Christianity in this book, then it's a good story. The story did portray what planning a wedding is really like but the authors overuse of Christianity in this book made it hard to read.
Will You Marry me? Feb 10, 2006
I do, is the fifth and last book in the Caitlin series. It is mainly about Caitlin getting ready for her wedding. Josh proposed to her at the beginning of the book. He proposed to her in a very special way. All through the book she is fighting her wedding battles. She has to try to go through with her mom and Josh's mom telling her different things she needs to do. Josh's mom likes to spend lots of money and Caitlin's mom is the complete opposite. Caitlin just wants to have a simple wedding. Jenny was a very big help since she has transferred to Caitlin's school. They are now rooming together. Beanie got accepted to a design school in New York City and is helping Caitlin out with the designs for the bride's dress and the bridesmaid dresses. Caitlin is also trying to figure out where they should go on their honeymoon. Caitlin and Josh are having their wedding at a big church and the reception at a place they went together in high school. Is Caitlin going to get everything worked out or get completely stressed? I would recommend this book to any girl that can read the reading level. I would also recommend this book to people that like the books, P.S Longer Letter Later and Snail Mail No More because they are very similar. This book was a very good book. I like everything about it and I don't think that I disliked any part of it.
I Do! Sep 28, 2005
I do! Is a story about a girl named Caitlin O'Conner. It is the fifth book in the series of Diary of A Teenaged Girl. Caitlin is a senior in college and was at a wedding for two of her good friend. After a while at the reception, Caitlin and her best friend Beanie were leaving when Josh Miller stopped them. Josh and Caitlin have a history together, and Caitlin has always liked him since high school. Josh asked Caitlin if she was busy that night, and she said no. Josh was driving somewhere that he told Caitlin was special, but Caitlin didn't know about it. He drove to the park and hopped out to open Caitlin's door. They walked through the park until they came to a clearing by the lake. There, Caitlin saw a table lit with candles. They sat down and were served by some high school-aged guys from their church. Then josh went down on one knee, and popped a question. I really liked this book because it explains what is happening really well, and makes it so you understand what is going on. I also like this book because every time you start the next book in the series, it explains like some of the things that happened in the book before that so you know what is going on at the beginning. I don't really have any dislikes about the book because I thought it was pretty exciting and interesting throughout the whole thing. I don't think people who like adventure books would like this. I also don't think guys would want to read this book because it is more of a girl book.
