From the author of Moxie, soon to be a major Netflix production

An empowering, feminist coming-of-age story about self-discovery, from the author of MOXIE - a Zoella Book Club book ...

Rachel Walker's family and community have turned away from the world.

Every part of Rachel's life is controlled, from what she reads to where she goes and what she wears. Her parents dictate how her life must be: marriage, modesty, children and obedience to her future husband. But when a former member of her community, a girl who escaped, moves back to her small Texas town, Rachel's world turns upside down.

She realises that her life is her own. But can she find the courage to fight for it?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Devoted tells the story of Rachel Walker. Raised in a strict Calvinist Christian family in a remote texan town, her life is controlled in every way, from what she wears to where she goes, to what she should and shouldn't read. Her parents decide every aspect of how she must live, and her life is already mapped out for her: Marriage, children, modesty and obedience to her future husband. Rachel lives in the shadow of her perfect older sister Faith, and younger sister Ruth who always knows what to say in her prayers, whereas Rachel can never find the right words. But when someone from the community's past returns - a girl who escaped this narrow world - Rachel's life is turned upside down. this is a story about one woman's fight to live life to its fullest. the characters and the setting are very believable, the story line is full of drama, and we cheer Rachel on all the way. * Burton Mail *
