Read full description of the books:
The story of two teenage girls are raised in seclusion on a religious commune until long hidden secrets begin to reveal themselves. I have to admit that I am pretty interested in the stories of people who live outside of regular society like this, and it was a pretty fast read.
The alternating voices of Agnes and Honey didn't work particularly well for me, especially since I found Agnes so much more believable than Honey. I read here that the author had originally written this only from Agnes' perspective - which doesn't really surprise me. Honey's voice is defiant and comparatively modern, but I have a difficult time believing that someone with her background would ever speak/act the way that she does. It ends up being distracting.
I liked a lot of the writing here, and Galante does keep things pretty even handed, considering the subject matter. This is not a sensational book, although a lot of sensational things happen. Certainly an interesting addition to the YA genre.
