Summary
Piper was raised in a cult.
She just doesn't know it.

Seventeen-year-old Piper knows that Father is a Prophet. Infallible. The chosen one.

She would do anything for Father. That's why she takes care of all her little sisters. That's why she runs end-of-the-world drills. That's why she never asks questions. Because Father knows best.

Until the day he doesn't. Until the day the government raids the compound and separates Piper from her siblings, from Mother, from the Aunts, from all of Father's followers--even from Caspian, the boy she loves.

Now Piper is living Outside. Among Them.

With a woman They claim is her real mother--a woman They say Father stole her from.

But Piper knows better. And Piper is going to escape.

Booklist Review: "For Piper, there's before and there's after. Before, she had her little sisters, friends Caspian and Thomas, and Mother and Father. Father was preparing them for the end of the world, warning of the dangers of the Outside. But just as Piper is readying for initiation into the Community, the government raids their home and takes the children away. That's the after. After the raid, Piper is forced to live with a woman she doesn't know, in a big, fenced off house, and all she wants to do is escape and find her family. Tensions mount as Piper begins to discover more about her past, bringing up more questions than answers, until she is forced to confront her Mother in an effort to find the truth. Peterson uses her own experience as a teenager in a cult to bring Piper's story to life through alternating before-and-after perspectives. These come together to create a rich, layered, and unflinching narrative of love, loss, and the struggle to become whole once again.--Rob Bittner Copyright 2010 Booklist"
