Watch How We Walk by Jennifer LoveGrove

"Watch How We Walk" just hit the bookshelves on, October 1st. 



The story is told in two parts, one when, Emily is young and innocent and the second, in which Emily is older and on her own. It is told in a before and after fashion.


 Emily is fascinated by her older sister, Lenora and struggles with her families strong, devout convictions to the, Jehovah Witness religion. Lenora, is constantly testing the bonds of their religious beliefs and their parents patience, causing additional stress on an already strict and complicated family. In order to deal with things, Emily takes to self mutilation. 

As, an adult woman and on her own, Emily continues to struggle with her past and process what, went wrong in her childhood and how the incident with her sister, changed her and her families forever. 

LoveGrove gives strong insight into what strict parents and strong religious convictions CAN do to a family and how it can tear it apart. This novel is well written and worth the read.
