Unfollow

COMING IN OCTOBER. For decades, Megan Phelps-Roper was one of nationally notorious, anti-LGBT Westboro Baptist Church's most articulate champions. In her new memoir, Unfollow, she has become one of its sharpest critics. Reading about her journey from being one of her grandfather and Westboro founder Fred Phelps' most devoted followers to a person the group now condemns puts the reader in the center of a existential debate. What should a person raised in a reclusive faith community do when she begins to doubt its mission? How does she leave when it will mean being rejected by all the family and friends she's ever known? Roper-Phelps combines a sharp intellect and seemingly boundless reserves of emotional bravery to chart her slow awakening to the damage hatred can cause. A fascinating read! Recommended by Kelly
