Hi, all.

I have just submitted Not Without My Sister by Kristina Jones, Celeste Jones, 
and Juliana Buhring to step one. It was a difficult book to scan, as there were 
some very strange fonts that messed with Kurzy quite a bit. However, I think I 
caught and removed all of the strangeness. Headers have been stripped, along

Page breaks and chapter headings have been protected. Kurzy gave it a 99.71, 
once all was cleaned up.

forced to live in various missions with multiple foster parents, the sisters
eventually managed to escape. In this startling exposé, they have come together 
to reveal in horrific detail the group that has destroyed the lives of
so many. Their intertwining stories reveal a community spread throughout the 
world whose legacy of anorexia, depression, drug abuse, suicide, and even
murder are impossible to erase. Together, the sisters found a strength that 
finally enabled them to uncover and free themselves from the shadows of their

Who can heal, but one who has healed herself? 
Who can know, but one who has asked and sought? 
Who can lead, but one who has traveled the way?
