Description

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.

Great Book for teens

I listened to this YA novel on Audible yesterday and finished it on my commute today. It was recommended to me by a friend
It's the engaging story of a young teen's escape from a cult told in flashback,and mystery. The heartbreak of The main character Piper's PTSD and resulting mental illness is handled without stigma. Because he main character's journey through her breakdown is handled in a very authentic way; reading it could be incredibly helpful to a young person traveling through their own depression, anxiety, or angst. I found the author's descriptions of Piper's memory loss and disassociation to be so very accurate, and described poignantly. The book is good storytelling, but I recommend for two more important reasons- firstly, understanding mental illness and childhood trauma in a non-judgmental way; and secondly, encouraging free thought with self awareness.

Very Different

I was not really sure where this story was going to go, but I ended up really enjoying it. If you love True Crime and different things like that, I think you will enjoy this one. There is a limited look into the cult life, but it was still very interesting since you know that things like this really happen. This story follows Piper before and after being in a cult. I found the parts with the story and the cult interesting. I also enjoyed the after parts as Piper starts to unravel everything that has happened in her life. This not a very detailed read, but you will find yourself wanting to know what happens next. It is unlike any other thing I have read. Overall, this was surprised me and I really enjoyed it.

Wonderful, mysterious and well-written!

I loved The Liar's Daughter, which kept me guessing till the end. It was a reminder of what happens when control and submission are at play - in both organizations and personal relationships.

if you're an ex-JW this is triggering.

Damn. Great, wonderful, fantastic, and just a little too close to home. No rape (thank God) but this book will stick with me for years.

The Liars daughter

My 13 year old daughter and I really enjoyed listening to this book together as one of our quarantine activities. We both thought that the book has a great depth about it. Such a wonderful view of the life she paints for Piper, and her siblings. I love the before and after chapters and what it ends up meaning. A very good book for a variety of ages.

Intriguing Plot, Frustrating Details

I loved the synopsis and preview, so instantly bought. The story is a fascinating concept. However, I wish the synopsis hadn't revealed the biggest plot twist. Although I figured that part out before the narrator did, the knowledge of it made the pacing frustrating. It felt unrealistic that they wouldn't tell Piper what was going on. I can't imagine anyone would think it would be better to let her think she was with a stranger, needing to get back to her parents, regardless of how she reacted the first time.

Still, overall I found the characters and their relationships compelling, and there are many good details that click after the reveal, like the hair bleaching.

The narrator ruined the book a little bit for me, though. Her voices for almost every adult female was the same, and so cheesey. She made the whole thing feel a little cartoony, which did not at all match the tone of the book. I understand wanting to add levity and showing that Piper was happy Before, but still. It didn't feel appropriate for the story.

Wonderfully written, impeccably narrated

Very immersive story and the narration provided seamless and subtle nuances to each character, making it effortless to get lost in the story.
