The Chosen One

The Chosen One

This was a powerful read.  Kyra is a member of "The Chosen One" and she lives with her father and his several wives.  Kyra questions whether this is truly the right way to live.  She sneaks in books to read, sneaks out at night to be with a boy in the order and mentally questions what she is taught to be gospel.  When she is picked to marry her uncle (in his 60s), she makes a decision to not go along with this idea.  When she rebels, she is severely punished.  This book was incredibly moving and disturbing all at once.  Kyra is a character that readers will immediately be drawn to and root for in her escape attempt.  I highly recommend this book.
