Publisher's Summary

Born into a controlling, abusive cult and betrayed by those he trusted, Josh hungers for freedom from the Fundamental Faith in God. After his first escape attempt fails, Josh takes even more solace in a rustic cabin he and his oldest brother made, finding peace in isolation.
After unspeakable tragedy strikes, Josh flounders for hope and anything that will soften the grief threatening to destroy him.
Determined to escape the cult that offers only heartbreak and loneliness, he's stunned by an unexpected connection with one of the other kids in the cult orphanage. That doesn't stop him and he continues to prepare for a final escape.
But when the other kids in the cult need him to protect them and be part of their family, is Josh betraying them by trying to get away?

Shocking and Heartwarming at the same time!

This book will leave you feeling all kinds of emotions: anger, sadness, love, friendship, and joy. The author did an excellent job of showing about the cult that Joshua lived in, but making the book about relationships and overcoming hard things. At times I wanted to strangle characters and other times hug them. Listen to/read this if you're looking for a unique perspective on growing up.

Engaging and thought provoking

Interesting read about a young boy and his experience growing up in a cult. It's not so much about the cult but about the lessons that we can learn from life. Joshua's experiences teach morals such as perseverance, forgiveness and self control. We are who we make ourselves to be, in spite of our surroundings.

I really enjoyed this coming of age story and the engaging with the main character as he turned from boy to man.
