Audible Spinstering: Jesus Land
Today's book was yet another memoir and suggestion from my coworker, David. Let me just start out by saying that Jesus Land: A Memoir is full on sad and insane. It's the story of a girl (Julia Scheeres), her adopted brother David, and their experiences growing up. A large portion of the book takes place in the Dominican Republic at a reform camp called Escuela Caribe. According to a quick Google search, Escuela Caribe is also the subject of a documentary called Kidnapped for Christ, one of whose co-executive producers was none other than Lance Bass.
So, if you're not scared of a little shock and sadness, then I say go for it. I couldn't tear myself away. I'm pretty sure I've only ruined it for you a little.
