All Fall Down by Megan Hart

This book is one that stays with you for awhile after you read it.  I did not read the description of the book prior to beginning it, so it took me a couple of pages before I caught on to the topic of the book.  I’ve never read a fictionalized account of the aftermath of leaving a cult, so this was an interesting topic for me.  The most positive aspect of this book is that it is not at all predictable.  Most of the time when reading a book, you can see where the author is heading.  However, three-quarters of the way through the book, I still was not sure if Sunny would return to the cult, or make it outside of the cult.  I think the author did a good job of describing the programming the members endured and what made Sunny and her children behave the way they did.  I really enjoy books that have interesting characters with depth to them and this book delivers that.  The only thing I did not like about this book was going back and forth in time from the past to the present.  It is a literary device that I personally do not enjoy.  Overall a good book for the unusual topic and believable characters.
