I Will Followby Bethany Patchin, Claire Cook
Meg Atwell, age sixteen and three-quarters, is a young woman with principles. Romantic principles. She's never been kissed and never been on a date. She's also never traveled far from her home in Wisconsin, so she's apprehensive about embarking on a five-week mission trip to Mexico. Little does she know what joys and challenges await her-in the heart of Monterrey, in the faces of its children, and in the eyes of a young man.

I Will Follow struck a deep chord for me. It is the most challenging, heart-wrenching, convicting, and inspiring novel for young women I've ever read. I literally could not put it down, and yet, when it ended, the next step was mine--because the story is similar to each of ours and we can write the ending. I laughed, I squirmed, I sighed, and I cried. But there was no escaping the message--follow Christ, above all else. It's not a happily-ever-after story--it's real life, hard work--and the hardest of all, it challenges us so deeply with the truth that we have to face it just as Meg does. I highly recommend the book to every teen girl or single young woman I know. It is a challenge we each need, yet encouragement that we are not alone and others face the same things we do. But in the end, we are inspired to choose as Meg did, to follow the Lord intsead of her own wants and desires. The authors wrote in such a way that you knew they had been there, facing the same things in their own lives. But they didn't give their story a nice, comfortable and romantic ending--they left off right where each of their readers are, leaving them to write the next pages in their own lives.
