1. What’s the name of your current read?

Girl at the End of the World by Elizabeth Esther

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

Papa George hands me the gift and leans forward, watching intently.  “Don’t rip the paper!” he warns.  “Save it and give it to your mother.  Maybe she can use it for another gift.”

I carefully unwrap the present.  In Papa George and Grandma Betty’s view, childish stuff like ripping open presents is intolerable.  Childhood is a time of serious preparation for Christian service and the End Times.

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

NOPE.  Elizabeth Esther’s memoir is a haunting look at what happens to a child when caught in the visegrip of fundamentalist Christianity, and I want no part of that world.
