The Only Girl in the World
A MemoirBook - 2017
For readers of "Room" and "The Glass Castle." Maude Julien's parents were fanatics who believed it was their sacred duty to turn her into the ultimate survivor - raising her in isolation, tyrannizing her childhood and subjecting her to endless drills designed to "eliminate weakness." But Maude's parents could not rule her inner life. By turns horrifying and magical, this is a chilling exploration of psychological control that ends with a glorious escape.
