Recommends it for: no one.
It's been awhile... but what I remember is that it has some interesting out looks of lesbians. Mainly how not to be one. But it wasn't very good information. At least not for me. (Needed a lot of faith and humor to believe what they were trying to say.)
Reparitive therapy. Did not work for me.
If I could find a way to give zero stars I would.

Howard is entitled to her own opinion and outlook on her life, but I cannot help thinking how this memoir will be damaging to young queer people, regardless of their religious identifications.

In terms of the merits of the style of the memoir: I found the writing jarring and more akin to a sermon than a memoir. The times that Howard's writing flows the best is when she writes short excerpts of her life prior to her attempts at a heterosexual life
Chapter 1-3 is good if you are a new Christian. However if you are a seasoned Christian, skip it and start reading at chapter 4.
The chapters about mother and daughter relationships were well written and had a lot of truth. So often people attack what they don't understand. After reading this book I came away with a greater understanding of this population.
