At first, it's challenging to read, but as the story unfolds the language becomes less of an issue. The story is really relatable for teens and many feel a sense of accomplishment when they finish it AND find they actually understood it! It's one of my all-time favorites!
This book was really interesting. The plot unfolded in a way that created suspense, It also gave a unique perspective into what it might be like to be in a cult and also the juvenile detention system. I was a bit disappointed with the ending though.
