The Project

So many of us love to consume media about cults like The Peoples Temple, with histories equally fascinating and gruesome. We think to ourselves, I’d never be so foolish, shaking our heads at the hundreds who died at the hands of Jim Jones and co. At the beginning of The Project, Lo’s of the same mind. Orphaned at thirteen, she simultaneously loses her sister when Bea cuts ties to join The Unity Project, a local cult-like service organization. Now nineteen, Lo is an aspiring journalist. She wants to profile The Project, and even moreso, she wants her sister back. With a twist near the end that I never saw coming, The Project is classic Courtney Summers—vivid, emotional, and thrilling. Recommended by Mary
