"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Lost Boy
by Brent W. Jeffs

LT Early Reviewers

Brent Jeffs, nephew of imprisoned leader of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) - a splinter sect of the Mormon church, reveals the true story of the terror and love he experienced growing up in the compound. He chose to walk away, press abuse charges against his uncle and share the details of how expendable boys are in this sect. Those that are cast out or choose to leave are the "lost boys" who are tragically unprepared to survive in the real world and often don't.
