Summary - Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father’s three wives and her twenty brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much—if you don’t count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her. But when the Prophet decrees that Kyra must marry her 60-year-old uncle—who already has six wives—Kyra must make a desperate choice in the face of violence and her own fears of losing her family.
Review - Okay, so I'm not going to lie here, this book made me so mad and irritated and I don't know how many times I wanted to throw it or crawl into it and tell at everyone.
The book was mostly about polygamists, which I personally find kind of disturbing. I am not a very religious person, but this book was always saying anything outside their compound was "the devil". This was one of the things that irritated me the most.
Then toward the end, I still didn't love the book, but I was starting to get a little more into it. I was happy with the way that it ended. I'm doing my best not to give away any spoilers, but I will say that there are some things that I wish would have also happened, or gone differently.
