Read full description of the books:
As a young Mormon girl, Ingrid fantasized about her real family—the Osmonds —who would soon rescue her from the drudgery of daily home church sessions, embarrassing trips to the church welfare office and the seemingly endless hours spent harvesting and canning fruits and vegetables in preparation for the Last Days.
In this collection of poignant, funny and sometimes outrageous stories about life with an intensely devout Mormon mother and an absent, excommunicated dad, Ingrid takes readers into a childhood where caffeine is evil, Satan comes out at midnight, Native Americans are believed to be cursed descendants of an ancient
prophet, and turning eight means a life marred by guilt and once-a-month starvation.
The stories follow Ingrid into her teenage years, when she accompanies her Austrian mother on a mental hospital rescue mission, battles her way through the humiliation of banned sex-ed classes and restricted Mormon dating, and escapes her religious home life by spending summers as a tool-selling vagabond with her freewheeling dad. Through her journey —which includes liquor-filled chocolate relationship building with her European grandmother and a disastrous stint as an East Coast nanny —Ingrid finds her voice and claims her own spiritual beliefs devoid of rules, guilt, heaven or hell.
