Where did I get it? Amazon, I pre-ordered it on the recommendation of my friend Angie, so had it in my hands on release day!

What's it about? Rachel is one of the oldest girls in her large, fundamentalist Christian family. She's homeschooled and expected to take care of her younger siblings. One Sunday in church, one of her peers is just back from Jesus Camp and repenting his sins. Rachel starts thinking, and remembers a girl who left the church but who has moved back to the area. Rachel isn't really allowed unsupervised access to the computer, but snatches time here and there to google the girl who left and read her blog. 

What age range is it for? It would depend on the teen, I think. Anything from 14+, but it would be useful to have a conversation about spiritual abuse. 

Are any main characters LGBTQ+? No.

Are any main characters non-white? No.

Are any main characters disabled either mentally or physically? No.

Is there any sex stuff? No.

Are drugs mentioned or used? No

Is there any talk of death? No.

Are there swear words? Very few. Like maybe two instances. 

Would I recommend the book? Yes, definitely

How many stars? An excellent 9 out of 10.

Where is the book going now? It's currently with my friend Lucinda who expressed an interest in reading it.
