Reader's Annotation: Will Kyra be able to chose between family and what her heart's desire?
Summary: Kyra is a 13 year old growing up in an isolated community that is following a religious leader. She is chosen to marry someone when she is in love with not only books but a boy. What will happen when her parents and community find out about her?
My Evaluation: Whoever thought this was a good book for young adults/teens needs something, I don't know what. It is completely not a young adult/teen book. Maybe okay for High school students but anything less, absolutely not. The concepts and images depicted in this book are of a rough nature and hard for younger readers to deal with. It was a very disturbing book... The writing was good but disturbing.
