    1. Astonishing, overwhelming story!Oh my god, this cut through my heart. I felt the pain, my heart was beating in my throat. I wanted to shout, I was so angry and I felt the helplessness. It was like I was part of this story, it felt so real that I did have to remind myself that this was fiction and to calm down. It was heartbreaking, intense emotional and so much more. At one point things got uncomfortable, you did't want to keep reading but you could't stop reading and not knowing for sure what h [...]

    2. After dealing with her parents putting her through a pray away the gay meeting and being raped, Jodi leaves without speaking to anyone. Although her parents know where she is they don't reach out to her for 3 years. When they do Jodi's life becomes a series of court battles and harassment! The twists in the story were a bit predictable, but the story made sense. There were some editing mistakes. He were there would be she, a couple times the misuse of a name. But not to distraction. Other compla [...]

    3. Amazing book!It is no surprise that this book is number one! The writer provides a thoughtful yet gut wrenching view of reality into the practice of pray the gay away mentality in a lot of conservative churches. Not to mention the awful practice of "corrective" rape that goes on unchecked and unpunished.The supportive way that Jodi's friends treated through the her ordeal was also well done.A very good book to read. Job well done!

    4. Tricky! What I mean by this, is that the subject matter is horrific. But M. E. Tudor tackles it with sensitivity and compassion. We meet some old friends and make some new ones. This author has a great writing style and keeps you hooked from the first to the last word. Enjoy, I did. Now I want more.

    5. Want moreI hope there's a sequel. I want to visit these characters again and see what happens next. Normally I would take a star the numerous errors, but I liked the tale too much to be that critical.

    6. Hard to put downThe twist and turns made this a hard one to put down. Jodi is inspirational and the relationship progressed nicely between her and Kaitlyn. The fact that the relationship was not the focus of the story was refreshing.

    7. Great read!I really enjoyed this book. Very well written. You can feel for the young girl being persecuted. It's hard to read about the pray-away-the-gay, and believe it still exists in America.

    8. This book is fast pasted and keeps you wanting to know more. Even though the subject matter is heavy, it's handled with such care and class.
