i finished reading jesus land a memoir on sunday, it is a great read. i sat in the tub bawling when i was done. turns out the author julia scheeres has a blog. jesus land is a very frustrating read, everyone is a christian lunatic and the ones who aren't are extremely racist pieces of shit. discovering her site after reading the book is amazing cos there's family pictures and a whole bunch of other shit to go through. basically it's about julia growing up white with two adopted black brothers their mother is a christian psycho and the dad is never around they live in rural indiana and everyone in town and school is racist and inevitably they are sent away to the dominican to a christian reform school, pretty much every character they encounter along the way you want to fucking murder. read it. don't go through the pictures though well go through some but don't go through the ones near the end it will spoil it.
