I'm 'reading' (audiobooking) my first book in what feels like forever. I heard about 'Unfollow' from an interview with its author Megan Phelps-Roper- yes, that Phelps-Roper- on TDPS podcast and I've never been sucked into a book so fascinating. It's a memoir in which she opens up about her life growing up in the Westboro Baptist Church, and how she subsequently left the church and by extension her family. I'm always interested in the stories of people who have escaped cults, and at first that's what I thought this was. But the more I learn about the family's origins and Megan's recollections of her childhood, I'm seeing a slightly different framing of it all (though I still find their messages highly revulsive.)
If you're looking for a new book to pick up, I'm recommending this one!
