This is a beautifully written memoir of a little girl who survives a childhood of abuse within her adopted family of Jehovah's Witnesses. A fascinating look into a religion that I knew little about and a painful insight into the psychology of growing up in fear. But, this book is more than that, though. It is never sensational or sentimental. Joy Castro is an amazing writer of short stories and poetry and she applies these skills to this finely crafted memoir.
