Breaking free from a religion that simply holds you down. From the outside it seems like an easy thing to do, but if you are raised in a community like this, it can be very difficult to get out. This book I believe captures that struggle well.
I don't know how to feel about this book. It was very readable, some of the prose was beautiful, I cared about the protagonist, but it felt emotionally manipulative and some of it made no sense at all. You are such a secluded group of religious followers but you send your kids to public school? With a quick ridiculous explanation that they had to because they'd "gotten in trouble with the government" for not sending them before? ?♀️
