I'm always intrigued by any story about a cult, don't know why, it's just something that grabs me. And this book did just that from the time I read the sneak peek, and then once I actually had the book in my hands and started reading, it was so hard to put down. This one was even better than others, because while I thought I knew what was going to happen, the author threw in several twists and turns that I did not see coming. My guesses as I went along were either so on track, or just to the side of what was actually happening. It all made sense as the twists were explained, and made the story, the cult itself, that much more devious. It also made you think about how what you've been told your whole life is always dependent on who is telling you those things, and what more is out there that you don't even know about it, if you don't look beyond what is easy and normal. I definitely will be recommending this for my students, as well as at the bookstore where I work.
