A very good read. It's sad that she had to go through what she did in order to get out, but she made it. Good for her.

This book was insightful, interesting, inspiring, sad, and happy all rolled into one. It is all about one girl's struggles to live her life in spite of one hurdle after another.

The author never says that her experiences are common in the Jewish religion. It is nothing more that one girl's story.

Perhaps if Ms. Vincent had lied and made her memoir sound like a fairy tale, Sabah would not have been put on the defensive. It's a simple shame that some people can't appreciate eye-opening literature

Fascinating, moving, disturbing, shocking, courageous, and uplifting. I could not put this book down!

Emotionally upsetting yet so fascinating this book got to me. It shows clearly what religion - any religion- can do if followed to the extreme. Good on Leah to find her way out of self destruction. An inspiring read.
