Rachel Walker s family and community have turned away from the world.

Every part of Rachel s life is controlled, from what she reads to where she goes and what she wears.

But when a former member of her community, a girl who escaped, moves back to her small Texas town, Rachel s world turns upside down.

She realizes that her life is her own if only she can find the courage to fight for it.

Devoted: A Novel by Jennifer Mathieu is an empowering young adult contemporary novel about self-discovery, by the author of The Truth About Alice and Afterward.

An Amelia Bloomer List Top Ten Book

"Jennifer Mathieu put her name on the YA map with last year s heart-wrenching high school bullying novel The Truth About Alice. . . . her sophomore novel is tackling subjects just as difficult: religion and cult, particularly as they relate to young women. Rachel grew up in the Quiverfull movement one similar to the Duggars practices on TLC s 19 Kids and Counting but as she finds herself connecting illicitly to the outside world, she starts to wonder if there s more for her as a woman outside of bearing children."
