It sounds like a really original take on the whole coming of age story, but I'll let your read more about it yourself:
Kicked out for refusing to join a cult, 17-year-old Jamie must find a way to survive on her own.
Jamie should have known something was off about the church of the Right and the Real from the start, especially when the Teacher claimed he wasn’t just an ordinary spiritual leader, but Jesus Christ, himself. But she was too taken by Josh, the eldest son of one of the church’s disciples, and his all-American good looks. Josh is the most popular boy at school too, and the first boy outside the drama geeks to give Jamie a second look. But getting her Dad involved in a cult was not part of the plan when she started dating Josh. Neither was her dad’s marriage to the fanatic Mira, or getting kicked out, or seeing Josh in secret because the church has deemed her persona non grata.
Jamie’s life has completely fallen apart. Finding her way back won’t be easy, but when her Dad gets himself into serious trouble, will Jamie be ready to rescue him, and maybe even forgive him?
Happy birthday Joelle! Glad I could participate. And guys, you want to know what is possibly the coolest part? On April 20th when The Right & Real launches, I'll be posting a new interview with Joelle about it. So enjoy the book trailer, feel free to comment, and don't forget to check back on the 20th.
Truly and always,
