Summary, etc.: The niece of controversial Scientology leader David Miscavige presents a tell-all memoir about her life in the Church of Scientology. The author was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In this memoir, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org, the church's highest ministry, speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape. Complete with family photographs from her time in the Church, the author, a prominent critic of Scientology who now helps others leave the organization, offers an insider's profile of the beliefs, rituals, and secrets of the religion that has captured the fascination of millions, including some of Hollywood's brightest stars such as Kirstie Alley, Tom Cruise, and John Travolta.
