Keep Sweet by Michele Dominguez Green
Alva Jane has never questioned her parents, never questioned her faith, never questioned her future. She is content with the strict rules that define her life in Pineridge, the walled community where she lives with her father, his seven wives, and her twenty-eight siblings. This is the only world Alva has ever known, and she has never thought to challenge it.
But everything changes when Alva is caught giving her long-time crush an innocent first kiss. Beaten, scorned, and now facing a forced marriage to a violent, fifty-year old man, Alva suddenly realizes how much she has to lose—and how impossible it will be to escape.
Oh yeah I read this book weeks ago. I forgot I even bought it until amazon sent me an email asking me to rate my purchase and I was like whaaaaaaaaaat. I had literally thrown it in a drawer and forgotten about it.
Keep Sweet should be sold in a discount pack with Sister Wife. This one is more brutal and I thought the ending was kinda dumb but whatever. If you’re reading books written for 14 year olds that’s what you get right? It was a nice read for a single evening
