i want to read this book but from the reviews i see, she puts down Judaism. Just because her family gave her hell and they are extremists, doesnt mean this represents Judaism. she should be clear. i read a few excerpts and i got turned off..

Heather I'm not Jewish so I can't come at this from a sensitive place of such but I don't feel like she was putting down Judaism at all. The story was more of a focus on her family and their specific practice. If anything she talks warmly about the customs and food, even after all her heartbreaking experiences.
Abby Goldsmith She writes with pure honesty, and she's very clear up front that she's only talking about the ultra-Orthodox Yeshivish sect. Her family and community treated her like garbage. There's no way to whitewash that and still be honest.
