Présentation de l'éditeur

Imagine that your mother tells you that she is going away. She is leaving you with relatives whom you have never heard of-and they are members of a strict religious cult. Your name is changed to a biblical one, Esther, and you are forced to follow the severe set of social standards set by the cult. You don't know where you mother is, and you are beginning to lose your own identity.

Will keep readers guessing until the end 16 février 2003
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
One of the most moving, strikingly original teen novels to come our way in a long time is this candid story of a young girl's sudden introduction to a religious cult. When her flighty mother brings Kirby to live with her aunt and uncle, it's to a strict religious world where little is allowed and much regulated. Kirby's spunky spirit fights back at first; but she must learn to live within the family's rigid boundaries if she's to escape and find her mother. Eye-opening and vivid, this will keep readers guessing until the end, and provides a sharply poignant picture of brainwashing and cult control as experienced by a teen. Very highly recommended.

frustrating, yet addicting 24 mars 2005
Par sallyconfedo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
i started to read this book because a friend of mine had told me about it. i partially read it because my name is esther, and i am part of a pretty strict religion. I Am Not Esther had so many twists in it that i never would have expected. i loved that Fleur Beale kept Kirby's character strong to the very end. i was amazed to see what kind of a cult she was thrown into. just the thought of it makes me shudder. it was amazing to me that Kirby could stand up to a whole cult for such a long time, with pretty much no one to back her up. i thought this book was great, and i think everyone should give it a chance.

Good concept, weak execution 2 avril 2013
Par Kayla - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I picked this book up on a whim and it actually turned out to be a decent read. I knew that it would freak me out, as all novels with themes of abandonment and repression tend to do that, but I wanted to see what Kirby's reaction to all of the horrid things happening to her would be. And, yes, I kept thinking of the little pink video game character whenever her real name came up.

Her reactions to some things seemed to come from nowhere. As it's in first person I expected to see the build-up to her little explosions, to hear the internal conflict and lament with her on everything that she was being put through. But it was pretty much cut and dry writing. This happened, then this happened, then this happened. That was disappointing because I feel like I really missed out on the chance to get to know her and understand her more.

Thus I liked some of the supporting characters better, even those who fully believed in the religion that was being forced upon her. Daniel was just awesome. Maggie was adorable. Even her so-called friends were well-defined and memorable in their own ways.

So much more could have been done with this book that just didn't happen. The ending was vaguely disappointing and left more to be desired. I just wanted the meat of the story and was left to search through the bones to find something that wasn't there to begin with.

growing up under the shadow of a fanatical cult 6 juillet 2000
Par Sharry Madden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Kirby's mother is a caring nurse and a humanitarian,but quite dysfunctional in her own personal life, particularly with regards to her relationship with her daughter Kirby. Kirby and her Mum love each other but Kirby's Mum won't discuss her past- being a teenage mother and having to be excommunicated from the cult. When Kirby is is sent to live with her uncle (in the cult) she is able to piece together the reasons behind her mother's problems. The techniques used within the cult are powerful and influential.Kirby even has her name changed to Esther Pilgrim.The influence of the cult is so powerful that Kirby questions her own identity. She has to discover who she is,what she wants,and decide her own path for the future. Kirby deals with issues of growing up,sexuality,relationships,authority,choices and awareness of her place in the world. I found the story about a single parent and her daughter tracing the roots of their problems and trying to deal with their dysfunction well done.Kirby doesn't understand why her mother has abandoned her or how she really feels about her relationship with her mother.She begins by looking inward and then looks outward to the bigger picture.Kirby rises above the mental abuse of her over bearing uncle and the cult and with the help of an understanding school counsellor tries to break away.

I meant to give 4 1/2 stars 18 septembre 2005
Par Imaginary Flower - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am not Esther are so many things I cannot describe, but I do not know for sure boring is not one of them. Though I didn't feel any real suspense troughout the whole book, I sure was curious to keep on reading, about such a fantical family and community.

I thought Kirby's sarcastic remarks about using God's name in vain were amusing, and her close relationship with Maggie was something that I was absolutely loved and one of the reasons Kirby didn't lose her audacious personality. Kirby's relationship with Daniel was well played with a nice strong bond as well as with the other siblings.

Fleur did a wonderful job and I would love to read more of her work.

Aurevoir, Amicia
