Escape From Eden

A page-turning suspense thriller about life in a cult.

Sixteen-year-old Mia spent her life in a religious commune called Edenton, but has always questioned the teachings of the Reverend Elias Eden. Gabriel is a new arrival—a big city boy with an even bigger attitude. When he persuades Mia to sneak out, she discovers the commune is based on a secret more sinister than she could have imagined and must turn against everything she has ever known to save her loved ones.

Winner of the 2014 Silver Falchion Award for best young adult novel

"[Escape from Eden's] rewards are many; fast-moving action, a capable heroine, and a resolution that leaves plenty of room for a sequel."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
