Starbird was born into a free love, nature-loving, farm-dwelling group who follows their leader, EARTH. EARTH receives messages from the Cosmos that he translates to members of the Family. Everyone is devoted to him. But Starbird has a “calling” to join the outside world with a few other members and waitress at the Family’s organic cafe. She enrolls in school and is exposed to different ways of thinking. Soon, she learns what “brainwashing” is. She reevaluates her whole life – everything she’s ever known.
I got sucked into this novel, and started and finished it all within a day. It’s a tad predictable, but pretty good despite this.
