Summary, etc.:
"In this highly relevant memoir, blending raw honesty and humor, Heather Heath's story begins with her mother's search for escape from childhood trauma, becoming perfect prey for a cult. It follows Heather's coming of age journey while enduring gaslighting, educational neglect, suicide attempts, purity culture, realizing she was in a cult once she was physically trapped, the painful choice to be shunned for becoming a paramedic, marriage, divorce, spiritual deconstruction, trusting again, reluctantly homeschooling through a pandemic, and finally discovering her own faith. Giving each reader insight into a hidden world using pop-culture comparisons, you'll feel as if you were having a real-life conversation with her"--Amazon
