    1. A young girl, raised in a cult eerily similar to the FLDS, but without the polygamy, rebels against the future her life path holds for her. Eve watches as her circle of friends disintegrates and longs to begin her life as the love of a boy who in the end is not deserving of her. Her machinations in providing a means of escape for herself would make Machiavelli proud. One knows that this girl is equipped to handle herself in a grown-up world. Wise beyond her fifteen years and as cunning as a fox, [...]


    2. The narrator, a 16-year-old girl, has a strong, distinctive voice. I have mostly sworn off coming-of-age-in-dysfunctional-family stories, but this one was set in a religious colony just outside a small Iowa town, so I bit, & it was worth it. It reminded me a little of Jane Rogers's Mr. Wroe's Virgins. Though not as sophisticated, it still managed to make a religious quack a character you cared about. And the Iowa small-town landscape seemed authentically portrayed.


    3. This book is about a fifteen-year-old girl, Eve, living in a religious community called "The Colony" in a small town in Iowa. In some respects it is a standard coming of age novel, dealing with issues of sexuality and identity. However, the added lens of the religious upbringing lends some added tension to a well-worn plot. A good beach read.


    4. This was a cute, quick read about a girl coming of age in a religious cult in Iowa. I thought I could predict the ending, but, I was plesantly suprised by the last minute twist in plot. Worth the read!


    5. It was not my favorite book the author did a good job of showing how controlling a cult can be and how fake they are. I thought it was interesting how a male author did a good job of portraying a female narrator. I didn't especially like the ending but I suppose it was best for Eve.


    6. The narrator's voice never rang true, and I found the setting (a contemporary, semi-exclusionary Christian community in Iowa) less compelling than I had hoped. Eve vacillates between evangelical acolyte, Devil's advocate and precocious vamp, but is a troubled teen who didn't win my heart.


    7. Colony Girl was terrible. I thought it was going to be this captivating read about a girl who was breaking away from her religious sect. Instead, it was just about this girl breaking way from her colony to hook up with a dad and son. Do not read.



    8. To go along with the string of aweful books, this one pulls through to the end. Stay away unless you enjoy books written for 14 year old girls with content meant for adults.
