Review:All Fall Down by Megan Hart

My emotions were all over the place with this story.  I think because I know it happens all the time, or at least most of the story.
Sunny is a teenage mother of three in a cult that she has been raised in.  Her mother wakes her and her children and tells hers she has to take the kids now . Her mom has packed two backpacks, gave her some money and tells her her real dad just lives a little away. To take around the back fence their is a whole in the fence and not look back. 
At the same time their are lots of sirens and recording of the father calling them all to the chapel. Sunny does not know why her mom wants her to disobey and runnaway with her children.  Sunny has been raised to obey or your punshed.
Sunny shows up at her father's door with three young children in thin and worn out clothes.  Liesel is married to Christopher.  Liesel badly wants to be a mother but Christopher does not ever want children. Liesel is not having any luck getting pregnant and right now she found out again that she is not.  When Sunny shows up.  Christopher has not told Liesel that he did have a child with first wife or at least a possible child.
Sunny has  different beliefs and traditions from always living her life in the cult.  When they find out that all hundred of the people in the compound have committed sucide.  Sunny thinks she must be bad for her mother not to want her to go through the gate by drinking the rainbow punch.  They have practiced many times to take the punch that might kill them so they can leave their vessels and go through the gate.  The other times when it was just practice they did not know if it would be real or practice till it was over.  They were told that the reason was some of them were not worthy and any to confess or report on others who might be at fault.
Too see what life that Sunny lived is hard to take.  The abuse physical ,emotional and sexual everything her whole life is sad.  How she teaches the same thing or starts to with her young children. I had a hard time reading this book, because of the subject matter it is too believeable and well told story.  I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review by Netgalley.
