From the Publisher:
"by Georgia Briggs

Forget your old name. Forget your parents. These are the things Euphrosyne’s grandparents and counselor tell her. But if Orthodox Christianity is a lie, why did the icon so dramatically save her life? And what can she do to get the icon back?

In a post-Christian America, where going to church, praying, or owning holy things means death, a twelve-year-old girl searches for the truth. Finding it may cost her everything.

Distinctives:

• One-of-a-kind Orthodox novel in the popular dystopian genre

• Strong, relatable heroine faces some of the same issues as contemporary teens

• Powerful exploration of religious persecution, seen from the inside

• Recommended for ages 13 and up
