A dark tale of shameful secrets, religious intolerance, and breaking through the emotional chains binding one girl to an abusive home life
Martha is 12—and very different from other kids, because of her parents. Strict members of a religious group—the Brethren—their rules dominate Martha's life. And one rule is the most important of all: she must never ever invite anyone home. If she does, their shameful secret—Abomination—could be revealed. But as Martha makes her first real friend in Scott, a new boy at school, she begins to wonder. Is she doing the right thing by helping to keep Abomination a secret? And just how far will her parents go to prevent the truth from being known?
