*****Lost Boy by Brent Jeffs, Maria Szalavitz:::: more than 100 members wishing and I can't post it!  (Some very minor  water damage in center in pictures, but none in text). A very good read!   If you want to read it anyway, skip FIFO and for one credit, get it from me.  Either post here or PM me!

 Taken!!!

Edited to add:  This is the story of what happens to the boys in the polygamous society of the FLDS, as told by the nephew of Warren Jeffs, now in prison.  From the book's jacket:  "...girls can become valuable property as plural wives but boys are expendable, even a liablility.  In this powerful and heartbreaking account, former FLDS member Brent Jeffs reveals both the terror and the love he experienced growing up on his prophet's compound - and the harsh exile existence that so many boys face once they have been expelled by the sect."   Fascinating and informative.
