I...what can I say? I just want to scoop Jenna up and hug her so hard. She is one of the bravest people I have had the privilege to read about. I finished this book within a day of starting to read it. I just couldn't put it down. It's like a car crash that you can't help but stare at as you pass by. It seems unreal that this could be happening to children as young as 4 (the age Jenna was when her parents entered Sea Org). How can this be right? How can this be legal? How can it still be happening? If we heard about the things happening to Jenna, happening in a family situation next door, you would rightly call Social Services. So how can this so called 'religion' get away with doing this, every day, to so many? And people like Tom Cruise stand there with a smug grin on their face and say it's all good. No. It is NOT all good. It is a brainwashing cult that is after money and control.
Jenna's story is heartbreaking and it's real. It's not fiction. It's not invented. And it's not original. She is one voice of thousands. She is so incredibly brave to have endured all she did and still come out the other side, fighting and helping others.
Anyone even considering looking into joining Scientology should read this. And the other true accounts of ex Scientologists, to see exactly what it is all about. Jenna's words had me in tears frequently, angry on her behalf and ready to go and rescue her myself if she hadn't got out when she did.
This book is just so sad, but ends so positively.
Thank you for sharing with us Jenna.
