    I admit it. I'm not one to follow the trends. If anything, I'm the one
    standing on the sidelines, smiling to myself. Just because it's popular
    doesn't mean I have to buy/read/eat/sing/whatever it. That's why when
    Lysa TerKeurst's MADE TO CRAVE (Zondervan, 2011) debuted and hit all
    kinds of best-seller lists, I waited. "It's probably not all that
    good." "The author has a huge network." "Gotta be a
    combination of savvy marketing and the right book at the right
    time." Or maybe it's biblical, contemporary, life-shaping, fresh,
    and poignant --like its younger sister. Today's review covers the YA
    version of MADE TO CRAVE, written with best-selling author Shaunti
    Feldhahn. As the mother of young adults and as someone who writes for
    them (often through the pages of SUSIE Magazine), I try to stay in touch
    with YA literature. I rarely see anything as well-written, targeted,
    focused, and practical as MADE TO CRAVE FOR YOUNG WOMEN: SATISFYING YOUR
    DEEPEST DESIRES WITH GOD. Although the original book addresses the food
    cravings many of us battle, this version speaks to the physical,
    emotional, and material cravings that grip young lives in huge ways.
    Topics range from body image to inappropriate means of seeking approval
    to tough issues like promiscuity and alcohol abuse. Neither author is
    afraid of stark statistics or the kind of transparent sharing that
    breaks down walls. The book moves forward with just the right blend of
    biblical truth, personal anecdote, and directed challenge. Lysa and
    Shaunti are not finger-pointing church ladies but big sisters coming
    alongside to offer hope and help. The practical steps they suggest
    include directed journaling, Scripture memory suggestions, and wholesome
    activities that will help readers retrain their minds and reshape their
    hearts. I doubt I'll ever leap onto the next trendy bandwagon, literary
    or otherwise. But a book that says more than, "Just stop it"
    in its effort to help young adults recognize their cravings as idolatry?
    That's a trend to follow. Right away.
