This is a good wrap-up to the Caitlin series, but compared to the other books it felt like that extra spark was missing. Either that or it suffered from how long ago I read the first book.

It was fun to see wedding planning from her point of view once she accepts Josh's proposal. Other issues are raised (mostly anorexia and pre-marital sex), though not as deeply as readers of the series may expect. I feel like I should have more positive to say, but by book five it's become pretty standard.

On the downside, their relationship is sweet, but I felt disconnected from it. The former books mentioned but didn't really delve into their e-mails, and this book didn't seize the opportunity to show why they were so perfect for each other. I recognize it's hard to do that in the diary format and certainly wasn't looking for a full-blown romance novel, but it felt stilted. Some issues seemed resolved too easily, and I didn't see as much growth in Caitlin as I expected. She remains the girl who comes off as preachy and too perfect. I appreciate the attempt to show what it's like to be "the good girl" in today's society, but Caitlin really ended up turning into a Christian stereotype. I also felt like I should have read some of the Chloe books in between, but am looking forward to doing so now.

Overall, I did like the book. The mushy side of me loved what romance was there and it's certain to be enjoyable for those who invested in the first four.

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.

I do is the last and final book in the series of Diary of a young girl Caitlin. Finally! A happy ending. Caitlin is about to get married to Josh Miller the boy she has loved all along. Josh proposed to her at the beginning. Now onto the wedding preparations and telling the family members. She is going through wedding battles. She is listening to both her mom and Josh's mom telling her what she needs to do for her wedding day. Both parents are complete opposites. Jenny who is one of Caitlin's best friends helps Caitlin a lot prepare for her special day. They are now rooming together at the same college since Caitlin transferred. Beanie got accepted into a design school in New York City. She designs Caitlin's dress. Caitlin and Josh go through the motions like any couple who are about to get married. But they have God in it and that what makes it great. This book is the book we all have been waiting to read. I love this book. I love the ending. I love the wedding. I laughed and cried and cheered as I was reading this book. I will miss Caitlin and I wish her well.

I was so excited to have Caitlin and Josh get together! I loved hearing "from" Caitlin again. I'll admit, Caitlin's life is a little dull in comparison to Chloe's life (don't kill me, everyone!!), but it was a good book. I wished that we had had more about Zach, I really miss that guy! Anyhow, Caitlin had wonderful wedding, wonderful flowers, whole deal! Yay for her! Other then that (and everything already said in the other post) it was just a good book. I'm sad to leave Caitlin... But we'll still hear from her... hopefully!

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!

Loved this book so much! I didn't need to read the first book (which truly compliments the author's ability to fill us in on what's happening), and the word choice was spectacular. It was a good book for my age, which is just entering the teen years, and it was perfect for me because I am Christian as well. There was nothing bad in this book, and it truly is a well-written piece!

This is an awsome series and I reccomend reading all the caitlin books and in order. I like how they are christian based, have a good story line and teach good morals. The caitlin series follows a girl from high school through college and eventually marriage. I am 19 and read all 5 books during my fall semester at college.

I started these books as a teen and stopped after the third book because I could not find the next ones at the Christian bookstore. Finally, in my twenties, I still wanted to know how Caitlin ended up, so I ordered the last 2 books and was so glad I did.

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.

My girls aren't big reader but loved loved loved this entire series. Great values presented and real current kid issues explored but with an option of issuing your faith to help you through.
