This premise has me instantly intrigued, both the prospect of exploring a child's perspective of life within a cult/commune and life after on the outside. The except was very interesting and I was hooked to the story. I found the writing to be engaging and I am looking forward to reading more. Even a bit out of context with the excerpt being falling in the midst of the book, I already want to know more about the author and his brother and their family as a whole. I really felt for the author's efforts to do something most any young boy would want like buy a bike and the way this all played out with his brother.
