For the first thirteen years of her life, Flor Edwards grew up in the Children of God. The groups nomadic existence was based on the belief that, as Gods chosen people, they would be saved in the impending apocalypse that would envelop the rest of the world in 1993. Flor would be thirteen years old. The groups charismatic leader, Father David, kept the family on the move, from Los Angeles to Bangkok to Chicago, where they would eventually disband, leaving Flor to make sense of the foreign world of mainstream society around her. Apocalypse Child is a cathartic journey through Flors memories of growing up within a group with unconventional views on education, religion, and sex. Whimsically referring to herself as a real life Kimmy Schmidt, Edwardss clear-eyed memoir is a story of survival in a childhood lived on the fringes.
