The review by Jen Lepp on Goodreads describes my overall feelings toward this book.

However I felt a great deal of compassion for Ingrid. Her coming-of-age story is very similar to that of Jeannette Walls (The Glass Castle). I can understand her voice in the book as it relates to religion and authority as being skewed by her unique and terrifying experiences. For her courage in finally writing her story, I give her 3 stars.

That said, a better editor should have corrected the inaccuracies about mormonism.
