    [synopsis] => "Not a typical cult novel…Despite Avery's clear trauma and struggle for closure, her voice is strong and clear." – Booklist 

	"Avery's voice resonates…Powerful and moving." – New York Journal of Books

	An emotionally wrought, psychologically twisty coming-of-age story perfect for book clubs about a girl who escapes from a cult after a deadly fire destroys her family's compound, only to be haunted by That Night as she tries to build a new life for herself.

	A fire. Her escape. And the realization her entire life has been a lie.

	When nineteen-year-old Avery awakens to flames consuming her family's remote compound, she knows it's her only chance to escape her father's grueling survival training, bizarre rules, and gruesome punishments. She and her brother Cole flee the grounds for the first time in their lives, suddenly homeless in a world they know nothing about. After months of hiding out, they are arrested for shoplifting and a shocking discovery is made, resulting in the pair being separated.

	Avery is alone and desperate. She is uncertain if her "parents" survived the fire and is terrified to find out. But when the police investigation reveals there may be more survivors, Avery must uncover the truth about the fire to truly be free.

	Suspenseful, emotionally charged, and deeply thought-provoking, After We Were Stolen delves into the idea of family-those we're born into and those we make-resilience, and the lengths a cult survivor will go to finally be free of her painful past. 

	Praise for After We Were Stolen:

	"Brooke Beyfuss's After We Were Stolen kept me feverishly turning pages, anxious and eager to find out what happened to Avery and Cole as they emerge from a life they never asked for and into one they're totally unprepared to navigate." -Melanie Abrams, author of Meadowlark

	"After We Were Stolen is an intelligent and heartrending story of vulnerability, power, resistance, and redemption. An excellent read that is sure to be a favorite book club pick." -Rebecca Taylor, author of The Secret Next Door
