Nice little coming of age story about a girl who was raised among the Hutterites.

The most interesting parts were those that explained the Hutterite lifestyle. They live communally with no private property in colonies. When the colony gets too big they start a new colony and everyone draws lots to see which colony they'll go with. It's a society with a perfect safety net but little room for disagreements.

The little girl's family leaves the colony after a disagreement and then struggles to adapt to modern life.
