"I'm Perfect, You're Doomed: Tales from a Jehovah's Witness Upbringing" by Kyria Abrahams
I'm Perfect, You're Doomed is a funny look at Kyria Abraham's childhood as a Jehovah's Witness and her adult life as a disfellowshipped Witness. It is an honest tale of how life can be controlled by an organization, using religion and the fear of the end as a means to keep people in line.
Abrahams childhood was comprised of meetings, doorbell-ringing, and abstaining from pretty much everything else her schoolmates were involved in. But in her mind was always the thought that when the apocalypse came she and her family would be saved, while everyone in the world would not.
Then at the age of 18, she found herself disfellowshipped from the Witnesses and for the first time, partaking in the world she was always warned away from. Though it was a struggle at first she came to find that what she had learned growing up wasn't quite the truth.
This book is an honest look at growing up as a Jehovah's Witness, and what it means to question everything you grew up believing. Abrahams recounts her childhood with humour and while she is not harsh towards the Witnesses, she sheds light on how a controlling religious organization can affect children, families and relationships.
