Overview:

Author Sara Billups has many interesting, even insightful perspectives on life in a Christian home during 1980 and 1990. She refers to her fellow Gen Xers as orphaned believers yet believers still and searching for their place in the Church. I found her comments often very telling particularly as this reviewer is part of the Baby Boomer generation. But her narrative jumps from one thing to another in a rather disconcerting way and this takes away from the flow of the book and the ease in following her writing.

This is also part author memoir of her spiritual life and upbringing with her father being a central character.
