Boundless Sublime by Lili Wilkinson
Synopsis: ‘Ruby Jane Galbraith is empty. Her family has been torn apart and it's all her fault.
The only thing that makes sense to her is Fox - a gentle new friend who is wise, soulful and clever, yet oddly naive about the ways of the world. He understands what she's going through and he offers her a chance to feel peace. Fox belongs to a group called the Institute of the Sublime - and Ruby can't stay away from him. So she is also drawn into what she too late discovers is a terrifying secretive community that is far from the ideal world she expected.Can Ruby find the courage to escape? Is there any way she can save Fox too? And is there ever really an escape from the far-reaching influence of the Institute of the Sublime?’
This is the first Young Adult book I have read featuring cults, where the author explores why people stay when they start questioning their leaders. I usually find it hard to understand how people can be brainwashed into joining cults let alone how they stay.
Why do people not question what they are told?
How can they blindly believe?
Why can they not see the falsehoods?
Lili wilkinson allows the reader some insight into those questions as we follow Ruby’s journey or rather seduction into the Boundless Sublime cult.
A compelling read that hopefully encourages young people to question life and think about events occurring around them. ‘Life is for living. So go live it’
