The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams

The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams

13-year-old Kyra rebels against her close-knit, cult-like polygamist community when she is ordered to marry her 60-year-old uncle, who already has six wives.

This book touched my heart. It is an emotional, heartbreaking story of Kyra, a teenage girl who will break away from the cult after she finds out she will become the 7th wife of her uncle. Kyra will be beaten and has a lot to go through before she is finally able to leave.
This story will stay with me for a very long time.
