Her Pentecostal experience is so bizarre …

Carly Gelsinger’s coming-of-age memoir is reminiscent of Judy Blume’s 'Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret?', only this time our heroine prays for transformation by the Holy Spirit!  At times, her Pentecostal experience is so bizarre, you will be convinced you're reading fiction, but her adolescent journey is all too real.  Carly exposes the truth about religious life, in that some things don’t instantly change with the laying on of hands. Transformation takes time, patience and sometimes, a little bit of rebellious faith.
