520    "For fans of Wild Wild Country, Scientology and the 
       Aftermath and Uncover: Escaping NXIVM, a stunning graphic 
       memoir about a teenage girl who was lured into a cult and 
       later fought to escape and reclaim her identity. Welcome 
       to a place where you are valued. Where everyone is kind. 
       Where you can be your truest self. In 1980, Marianne 
       Boucher felt like a misfit. To the world, she was a high 
       school student with a bright future as a powerhouse figure
       skater. But she always felt like she was performing--both 
       on the ice and off. And then she found her people. Kind, 
       open-minded and totally different. They didn't care about 
       society's norms and expectations--they valued authenticity
       and compassion above all else. And they liked her. Not 
       Marianne the performance, but Marianne the person, 
       stripped of her veneer. Soon, she'd abandoned school, her 
       skating and, most dramatically, her family to live with 
       her new friends and help them fulfill their mission of 
       "changing the world." She was sure the sacrifices they 
       asked of her would be worth it. They were helping people, 
       and they cared about her . . . didn't they? Talking to 
       Strangers is the true story of Marianne Boucher's 
       experiences in a cult that brainwashed her and took over 
       her life. Told in stunning graphic memoir form, with vivid
       text and art alike, Marianne shares how she fell in with 
       the Unification Church--or the "Moonies"--and how she 
       eventually, painfully, pulled herself out."--|cProvided by
