My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape
By Jenna Miscavige Hill, Lisa Pulitzer
Jenna was born into Scientology. Her uncle, David was the leader of this highly powerful “religion”. Upon turning twenty-one, Jenna found the courage to leave this controversial world behind.
In this book, Jenna finds the voice to speak out about the “Church”, her life as a Scientologist, the rituals and secrecy within its boundaries, and its shielded leader, her own uncle.
Jenna discusses her early and long separation from her parents, her isolation and neglect during her childhood of “indoctrination” and church training. She also discusses its effects on her and the relationship, all for the “good of the Church”.
She discusses the Church’s emphasis toward recruitment of celebrities, loss of personal control, and harsh punishments and lack of personal freedoms for those who disagree.
This is a very revealing memoir about the highly secretive, hidden world of Scientology. It is told by an insider, one who grew up in it and survived to tell the story.
