ExMormon available from Amazon!

Many of you are probably familiar with C. L. Hanson's excellent blog Letters From a Broad (and if you're not, you should be!). She's written a book and it's now available for purchase. A synopsis:
If you’re raised Mormon, you have a plan all laid out for you: baptism at age eight, meetings every week, scouting and the priesthood (if you’re a boy), perhaps a mission and/or BYU, then temple marriage, kids of your own, and finally exaltation. But not everybody sticks to the script. Exmormon is a series of eight-and-a-half novellas about the kids of three Mormon families as they try to follow the straight-and-narrow path but occasionally strike out on their own. Their stories neither praise Mormonism nor condemn it. Growing up Mormon may or may not be a tragedy; losing your childhood belief may or may not be a failure — but either way, it’s an adventure.
Also, Hanson is donating the proceeds to Solar Aid and/or to the local conservation partnership with the Masoala National Park in Madagascar. A great read for a great cause!
