Grey Inspired By autumnskiess Completed

Highest Rank: #24 in mystery/thriller 
 In the United States of America alone, as of 2016, there are reported to be over 3,500 cults still active with a total of 4 million members. Some cults are political, some are economical, others are religious.
 And some, are still undocumented to exist.
After being abused her whole life by her strict Catholic parents, seventeen-year-old Elizabeth finally pushes them to breaking point because of her behavior and is forced to join an Academy that to the outside world, prides themselves on directing members to the right path of God.
However, that couldn't be farther from the truth as the Academy isn't an Academy at all--but a cult, and the members have been brainwashed and abused into perfection. 
As she fights to be unshackled from the cult's mind-controlling, immoral ways, Elizabeth soon discovers that once you enter Cross Academy, you can never get out without losing who you are. 
This is her story.

Also, the blurb. I recommend including an excerpt from your book that is haunting, and a shorter idea of the themes in your book. Being blatantly honest, the first three paragraphs of the blurb held my interest, and then after that I started drifting off. Recommend shorter
I can alread feel this is going to be intresting, I have little knowledge of these things so both educational and eye opening. Glad you warn the reader what they are in for.

That's a truly beautiful quote. It works quite well with the title.
