Ol This is a difficult review since I grew up in Pittsburgh and know some of the author s family
The Author Doesn T Use Real Names By The Way author doesn t use real names by the way went to school with her oldest two sisters one was in the grade above me and the other was one grade below me Since it was a small private school at that time one building for preschool to high
school we knewwe knew in the grades nearest us and the oldest sister ven was in some of my classes The author s oldest brother was in my brother s class and he was at our house a lot before he left town for high school These kids I knew personally and they were generally uiet but not in a shy way They were well behaved and polite I can t speak about the author since when I knew her she was a little kid and once I got older I didn t know the kids in the younger grades so much Anyway I guess I read this book out of curiosity because I thought the story can t be that bad Well it was and it s such a sad story Some people are xtremely sensitive to certain textures can t tolerate labels in clothes find certain fabrics too scratchy or to sounds tc They are labelled as having sensory issues they feel too much I think there are those who have the same thing but in an This Forsaken Earth emotional aspect so that things that you may Personally I thought this book was semi pornographic and irrelevantly so Ms Vincent describes in lurid detail various sexualncounters so meticulously and freuently that the book is overwhelmingly a story about her sexuality and not about why she left orthodoxy And the narrative is oddly incomplete we are treated to tale upon tale of sexual The Summer Palace: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 2) escapades but given very little of the story of how Ms Vincent succeeded at an Ivy Leagueducation marriage parenthoodsorry but I thought this read like trailer trash As a Jew reading this memoir was painful and gut wrenching in the fact that a religion that I adhere to although not as strictly was used to perpetuate the neglect and abuse that Leah Vincent was subjected to The fact that xchanging letters was all it took for her life to be turned inside out shows the depth of misogyny and xtremism that Campfire exists in fundamentalist sects of any religion Vincent s willingness to share the most painful disturbing and sexuallyxplicit moments of her life as points of reference for how individuals can become isolated and left to fend for themselves in a world they do not understand is a testament to her strength of will I rejoiced along with her when her college acceptance letters came throughLike other readersreviewers I also felt that the memoir could have used fleshing out at the nd of the book I wanted to be able to know of her successes and triumphs in college and with her future husband as well as how she began to rebuild a relationship with her brother that also followed her out of their Yeshivish sect This is not a review of this book I haven t read it and don t know if I will having OD d on the genre Instead I will give you a brief synopsis of my own yeshivish Orthodox memoir The one I ll never write because it s far too boring to publish But having grown up in that world I can tell you that my xperiences are pretty typical My family self identified as yeshivish but that word actually has a pretty broad meaning We were strict about our Orthodox practices but I certainly wouldn t describe us as fundamentalist a word being thrown around a lot in this book s reviews We had some family dysfunction which was pretty painful to live through at the time but we re kind of over it now I attended a strict all girls high school Sometimes I felt intellectually stifled Mostly I was pretty happy As I matured and my world Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars expanded I found a greater degree of intellectual openness which felt satisfying But I never wanted to abandon my Orthodox practices I m sure I m missing out on somexperiences but overall I feel these practices Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life enhance my life and make me a thoughtful and disciplined person The lifestyle doesn t work forveryone but it works okay for me There are also a lot of variations within the lifestyle and many people find a form that works for them rather than throwing the whole thing out I m not here to cast doubt on the authenticity of Leah s memoir I don t assume that Crazy Love everyone sxperiences mirror mine and certainly I ve met people whose trajectories are similar to Leah s than to mine But I want to give a shout out to the many yeshivish people like me Happy memoirs may be less marketable but that doesn t mean they re less authentic or less representative This memoir represents the Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society experiences of one individual It doesn t represent yeshivish orthodoxy as a whol.

A recommended read addressing an important social issue
many individuals who leave the ultra orthodox jewishindividuals who leave the ultra orthodox Jewish are at worst shunned and at best not bothered but neither provided with necessary tools to survive a secular lifestyleLeah is an activist who uses her heart wrenching xperiences as motivation to improve other people s journeys along a similar path I have seen her and her husband tirelessly offer their time fforts and resources to support the community of people who have left ultra orthodoxyThis book will take the reader on an Black Heart, Red Ruby emotional journey uestioning the cruelty in the world and the strength of the human spirit Leah goes through hell and back but ultimatelymerges as a strong victor and proof that others can succeed in a similar journey I could not put this down So many women have had similar xperiences when leaving fundamentalist religions and this one is particularly well told Starts off deceptively as a memoir and has some interesting details about an xtremely strict sect of Orthadox Judaism Then the author leaves home and the book turns into a poorly veiled xcuse for pornographic writing I gave her the benefit of the doubt that all of this was leading somewhere and was part of her journey towards assimilating into mainstream culture but
By The Time Ithe time I to the nd of the book it was clear she had no intention of writing or apparently thinking about anything Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey except her many sexualncounters That was 90% of the story Another 8% goes to her conflicted ongoing relationship with her family and 2% to oh and then I went to Harvard and had a successful writing careerI understand that this is a memoir and not a novel but I would have liked to know why she doesn t have any friends What are her thoughts now about religion What was it like adjusting to higher ducation after a restrictive background As someone who has also come from a fanatical religious background I know that there is far to this story than she is telling ven if poor choices were a part of that But she can t be bothered to tell the rest because apparently it s fun to just write smut and call it a book If Leah Vincent really has no way of relating to the outside world ЯED except through misplaced physicality then she needs to see a therapist not write a book If she can she should have written about it instead of presenting such a one dimensional and frankly degrading piece of writingA goodxample of a multi dimensional narrative of a young girl leaving a strict religious family which tells very part of the story is Waiting for the Apocalypse by Veronica Chater Much worthy of a read than Cut Me Loose I have a lot of ambivalence about this book It was very painful to read and while I understand the catharsis it brought the author I had reservations about the degree to which she xposed others who will also suffer pain from her revelations This book is a fine demonstration
