The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams

2011-2012 Gateway Readers Award Nominee
213 pages.

This is a book so powerfully written it literally made me bawl my eyes out, put it down, and go hug my children. It is a very quick read, I finished in just a few hours. Although this is a Young Adult Novel, I will not be recommending this to teens unless they specifically ask for it. This story of a thirteen year old girl born into a Polygamist sect is filled with torture, brutality, and despair. I literally wanted to fling it away from me when I was done.
