What Nomi Nickel needs most is a bus ticket out of town. For now, however, the rebellious 16-year-old is stuck living with her hapless father, Ray, in a bungalow in East Village - not the hip one in New York City but a smug Mennonite community ruled by her pious uncle, "The Mouth". Nomie's sister, Tash, left town a few years ago in her boyfriend's truck. Soon afterwards, their mother, Trudie, disappeared. Now there's nothing left but to piece together these mysterious defections and rage against the fundamentalist bullies.

This book is baffling and repetitive. The time jumps around. The girl smokes a particular type of cigarette and/or talks about the chicken slaughtering factory on every few pages. I can't understand how anybody can be so brainwashed that they would shun family members because their religious reader told them to.
