I love how Taylor used her own childhood experience in this story without it really being autobiographical. Nicely done and an eye opener to anyone who knows nothing of these organizations.
She really is an amazing writer. Will always being waiting anxiously for the next one.

Great book. Would have loved to read how the characters from the first book evolved to where they in the second one.

A page turner written by an amazing author. Cannot wait for the next Munroe book.

Although I didn't quite enjoy this as much as her first novel, it was still a good read with a most interesting character. Kind of lags at the end, but still recommended.

Simply Sensational! Stevens continues a great story, carrying the intense action established in "The Informationist" across a vastly different culture. This book is a page-turner and thrilling to read!

How is this woman even sane, let alone an accomplished writer? From Shelf Awareness: "Born in New York State into the Children of God, an apocalyptic religious cult, Stevens was separated from her family at age 12 and denied an education beyond sixth grade. She lived in communes on three continents and in a dozen countries before reaching 14. In place of schooling, the majority of her adolescence was spent begging on city streets at the behest of cult leaders or caring for younger commune children, washing laundry and cooking meals for hundreds at a time. In her 20s, Stevens broke free of the Children of God and now lives in Texas."

Her fists closed around a pair of Bersa Thunder 9s, identical to the one pulled off her earlier. If the magazines were full, and they would be, they afforded seventeen rounds apiece. If that didn't cover what she needed, she deserved to get shot.
