Jennifer Mathieu

Rachel Walker is devoted to God. She prays every day, attends Calvary Christian Church with her family, helps care for her five younger siblings, dresses modestly, and prepares herself to be a wife and mother who serves the Lord with joy. But Rachel is curious about the world her family has turned away from, and increasingly finds that neither the church nor her homeschool education has the answers she craves. Rachel has always found solace in her beliefs, but now she can't shake the feelingthat her devotion might destroy her soul.

She won the Teen Choice Debut Author Award at the Children's Choice Book Awards for her first novel, The Truth About Alice . She is also the author of Devoted and Afterward .
