Having been raised fundamentalist, Ms. Cross's book, "Fleeing Fundamentalism" rang true with me. I could identify with so much of the book that it was a little scary. Beyond that, however, the book was well-written and captivating. It could certainly be enjoyed by those not as familiar with the lifestyle.

I also admire the author's courage in writing the book. I know it is sometimes dangerous, from a societal standpoint, to make negative feelings toward the fundamentalist Church known. I respect Ms. Cross for putting that aside. I am personally grateful to her for writing this book, as I found it helpful, comforting, and insightful.

I encourage anyone to read the book, but especially recommend it to those struggling with a dogmatic, fundamentalist religious upbringing. I know you will find it as helpful as I did. It's always nice to know you are not alone in your struggles and Ms. Cross makes this clear with wit, grace, and style.
