Summary

Piper was raised in a cult. She just doesn't know it.

Seventeen-year-old Piper knows that Father is a Prophet. Infallible. The chosen one. 

She would do anything for Father. That's why she takes care of all her little sisters. That's why she runs end-of-the-world drills. That's why she never asks questions. Because Father knows best. 

Until the day he doesn't. Until the day the government raids the compound and separates Piper from her siblings, from Mother, from the Aunts, from all of Father's followers - even from Caspian, the boy she loves. 

Now Piper is living Outside. Among Them. 

With a woman They claim is her real mother - a woman They say Father stole her from. 

But Piper knows better. And Piper is going to escape.

Great Book for teens

I listened to this YA novel on Audible yesterday and finished it on my commute today. It was recommended to me by a friend
It's the engaging story of a young teen's escape from a cult told in flashback,and mystery. The heartbreak of The main character Piper's PTSD and resulting mental illness is handled without stigma. Because he main character's journey through her breakdown is handled in a very authentic way; reading it could be incredibly helpful to a young person traveling through their own depression, anxiety, or angst. I found the author's descriptions of Piper's memory loss and disassociation to be so very accurate, and described poignantly. The book is good storytelling, but I recommend for two more important reasons- firstly, understanding mental illness and childhood trauma in a non-judgmental way; and secondly, encouraging free thought with self awareness.

Performer needs to drop the regional accent.

I found it very distracting when the reader dropped consonants. Heighten became “hi-in”; curtain became “cur-in”. There were other slip ups, as well. She has a pleasant voice, but I wouldn’t listen to another book where she is the performer.

Wonderful, mysterious and well-written!

I loved The Liar's Daughter, which kept me guessing till the end. It was a reminder of what happens when control and submission are at play - in both organizations and personal relationships.
