Summary
"Sibling bond is at the core of Jesus Land, Scheeres's gritty, heart-wrenching memoir. ... A lesser writer would have buckled under the weight of this story ... A page turner ... Heart-stopping and enraging ... There is much praise, these days, for the detached, quietly elegant narrative. But there is little mention of the power a well-tended rage can bring to a good story ... Focused, justified and without a trace of self-pity. Shot through with poignancy." New York Times Book Review
Summary
Tells the story of a white girl who was sent from the Midwest to a Christian reform school in the Dominican Republic after she and her black adopted brother fought back against the racism and bullying that was directed toward them
