I have been a little obsessive these days reading about cults and fundamental Christian groups. 

Seed, fell perfectly into this topic for me. 

It is the story of a young girl growing up in a closed cooperative society. There is one "messiah" like father figure/leader. Many women who are there basically to procreate. And all are closed off from the outside world. 

Pearl feels as though she lives in a utopia. She was born into this world and knows nothing else and now that she is a woman, she hopes to be paired with Papa S, who is their connection to Mother Earth. 

It is when outsiders come to live with them, that Pearl begins to question their lives and beliefs. Is there something better? Is what she has been taught wrong? Perhaps the evil is within their walls not on the outside as they have been told.

Teens questioning their abusive, manipulative elders...nothing good can come of this. 
Happy Reading!
