The Kevinian cult has taken everything from seventeen-year-old Minnow: twelve years of her life, her family, and her ability to trust.

And when Minnow rebelled, they took away her hands, too.

Now the Kevinian Prophet has been murdered and the camp set aflame and it's clear Minnow knows something. But she's not talking. As she adjusts to a life behind bars in juvenile detention, Minnow struggles to make sense of all she has been taught to believe, particularly as she dwells on the events that led up to her incarceration. But when an FBI detective approaches her about making a deal, Minnow sees she can have the freedom she always dreamed of; if she is willing to part with the terrible secrets of her past.

Powerful and compelling. this remarkable and brave debut novel reveals the terrible dangers of blind faith. And the importance of having faith in yourself.

About the Author

Stephanie Oakes lives in Spokane, Washington, and spends her days working as a library media teacher in a combined middle and elementary school. She received her MFA in poetry from Eastern Washington University. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is her debut novel.

YA novel? One for the older end of YA and adults


A beautifully written novel about the trials of a cult survivor and how she has to come to terms with the real world and the horrific things that have occurred in her short life. A deep and dark story for young adults that I probably won't be passing it onto my 15yo son just yet. It is impossible not to feel for the main character Minnow, as well as her "friends". You also feel frustration at the one eyed cult followers who are brainwashed into believing what they do. This is a testament to the writing of the author.
