My son enjoyed this cute little story! The audio quality wasn't the greatest, there is significant background noise, but it isn't too distracting.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review.

I started out listening to book two of this series and was a little spoiled by that narrator. in comparison, this narrator was a little clunky and spoke in an odd way, but it wasn't too terrible.

I did struggle with getting a sense for this book's third rail, there were so many characters (I had trouble keeping the girls straight) and none of the original scenes seemed to be moving the story forward in any organized manner. There were a few things that jerked me out of willing suspension of disbelief, mostly things the adult characters did or said that didn't seem realistic.

About the halfway mark, things picked up though! I knew I liked this author, so I stuck with it because she tells a good story.

While I disagree with some of the theology contained in the book, I do think it is perfectly fine and on the level of YA or younger. :)

The stakes in the story were set very well and it highlighted some important issues for teenagers to think about. Overall, it was a fun ride! I would recommend starting with book two, Twisted Faith, and listened to this one as a prequel.

I received this book for free in order to review.

This story hit close to home for me as I was raised in a fundamentalist Christian community. It shines a light into the darkness of the realities of living in many of these abusive, cult-like homes.

The narrators were incredible, bringing the already well-written story to life.

The only issues I encountered were a few repetitive portions of text and some stiff language (for a teenage character anyway) that briefly jostled me out of the story.

I received this audiobook for free as a review copy. :)
