This was such a great book, it keeps the reader interested and caring for the outcome of the characters, especially Julia's brother.

Jesus Land is a gripping memoir. Julia Scheeres is a wonderful story teller who captures your attention and does not let go. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and have recommended it to many people.

"Review" by , "It is Scheeres's high emotion and her tight control of her narrative within that emotion that is most striking. Her anger serves her well: it is focused, justified and without a trace of self-pity."
"Review" by , "[W]hat makes Jesus Land unique and easy to relate to is its unadorned, dark humor."
"Review" by , "Julia Scheeres has written a love story that is as romantic and as sad as any recent memoir you'll read."
"Review" by , "This work will force readers to relive the angst of being a teenager at a new school and desperately trying to fit in."
"Review" by , "A bristly summoning of unpretty events, conveyed with remarkable placidity."
"Review" by , "The writing is Dickensian in its blend of the tender, the brutal, and the absurd."
"Synopsis" by , This riveting memoir is the story of a 16-year-old girl and her adopted, black, 16-year-old brother in Indiana who are sent to a reform school in the Dominican Republic by their violent father and distant mother more involved with her church's missionaries than her own children.
