Book Description

In a repurposed abbey deep in the mountains, Miranda must make her way through a maze of cryptic messages and personal demons to survive the cruel world of gay reparative therapy.

When Miranda Rothschild's twin brother, Mark, commits suicide, Miranda and her parents move to the peaceful, seaside village of San Avila, Texas, looking to escape their pain. At her new school, Miranda finds herself especially drawn to Clara Schuler, a gentle, artistic girl who, despite the protectiveness of her friends, is bullied for being a lesbian. Miranda tentatively confronts her own sexuality, but just as she comes to terms with her feelings, her parents discover her relationship with Clara. Miranda's parents send her to a reparative therapy camp, Prodigal Ministries, run by the sadistic Dr. Caleb.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Modern YA Novel May 28, 2012
By mori
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I agree this book needs one more proofing before it is complete, but otherwise, it was a great young adult novel.

The story follows a very put-together (and slightly stoic) 16 year old girl as she matures through adversity. It explores themes on family, romantic love, and religious faith, and how they may affect controversial (but otherwise wonderful) teens in small-minded, conservative American towns.

This book has some very gothic notes to it, and fans of Bronte's Jane Eyre will be pleased to see a modern take on her Lowood.

I did have some concerns about whether some of the characters were fully developed, and there were a few anachronisms that gave it a disjointed feel (seriously, what teen uses the word "louse" these days?), but altogether, this is an interesting story that focuses on contemporary teen problems, and I enjoyed reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book... May 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm about 80% through, and so I write this review without knowing the ending. My fingers are crossed for it to be a happy one. I love this character so much and I would hate for this to end badly for her.

I wanted to give the book 5 stars, but it honestly needed one more edit before being made available to purchase. There were just enough word usage errors to be distracting. Too many to just ignore, but not enough to ruin the book. I hope this author writes more, but I also hope you have someone proofread for you next time.

I still love it. If you have ever had a feeling of attraction to a member of the same sex, if you have ever wondered whether homosexual thoughts, desires, and actions are the same thing, whether any of it is a sin, if you've ever had any internal conflict about any of this, or ever wondered about those who had, you need to read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Well Written and Necessary Story May 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully written young adult novel that isn't afraid to make the reader uncomfortable. Miranda is a sweet girl and self-described late bloomer who is still coping with the loss of her brother as the book opens. With a new group of caring friends comes the discovery of her own sexual identity and the unforseen consequences that come with such a discovery in a conservative and religious family.
Though set in modern times, with a topical modern theme, it really does read much like a classic Gothic romance. Often I found myself angry on Miranda's behalf and I wanted to jump into the story and shake the so-called adult characters for their narrow world views.
The story is engaging and the characters are well developed, each with their own unique voice. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys young adult or Gothic romance, whether they are gay, straight, or otherwise oriented.
