Rory Miller and her best friend, Fee, are on the run after a bomb denotes in their elite Christian private school. Their triple-gated California community is filled with born-again Christians and celebrity worshipping while abortions are made illegal. During their American Chastity Ball, young women are dressed in white and make pledges to their fathers that they will remain virgins until they marry. The bomb denotes during the Ball causing the girls to run away and struggle for survival.  Christian zealots and bounty hunters are all hunting for the girls while Roy blogs about their story in real-time, in hopes of leaving the truth on what happened in case they don't make it.

In the span of 48 hours, readers are taken through Rory's and Fee's journey through events and what leads them to run away. I was a bit torn on the book, I didn't quite like any of the characters and felt like it was an overwhelming read (for me). I did feel for Rory who was having a hard time navigating her new reality. I thought the book moved a bit slowly and I wasn't fond of the narrating style. The book was a bit predictable but, the ending was a surprise and very unexpected. This wasn't my most favorite read of the month but, I am still opened to reading more books by the author. If you like dystopian books, then this might be a good book for you.
