Why read it?

1 author picked Keep Sweet as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I read this book in two days because the story kept pulling me back. It’s a YA novel that is accurate and haunting in its telling of the life of a young girl trapped in a polygamist cult. I loved how realistic this story felt.

I found this book so intriguing and came away with an interesting perspective on the issue of modern-day polygamy.

From Brenda's list on escaping polygamist cults.
