Publisher Description

The shocking news of polygamous cults has sparked a national dialogue on religious sects.  Splintered from and repudiated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, these secretive families exist in an insular world far removed from reality.  Yet for Brian Mackert, life inside this world was all too real.  As a son in a family of one father, four mothers, and thirty-one children, Brian experienced firsthand the devastating reality of the polygamous lifestyle: a reality that leaves thousands of children feeling hopeless and struggling to belong.  Now Brian shares his remarkable journey from a broken life to a healed soul.

    " This book is a FLDS polygamist book from a boy's perspective. This was an interesting book, but I found it to be quite anti-mormon. His "facts" about the LDS church were from the FLDS perspective, so they were skewed. "
