Running Lean

Calvin found a soul mate in his girlfriend, Stacey. His friends don't seem to understand his grief over losing his brother, but Stacey gets him. When she begins to take her dieting to the extreme though, Calvin wants to turn around and be her life line just as she has been his. But, nothing he says or does seems to help Stacey to see her God given beauty and stop her from going down the destructive path she has started on. Some things are truly only in God's hands.
I thought that this was an excellent young adult novel! It addresses several topics that are, unfortunately, very prevalent in our society. I like that this novel was realistic, not putting down how serious eating disorders are and how hard it is to recover from them on your own. This is an awesome debut novel!
