The Boundless Sublime

By: Lili Wilkinson
Location: FIC WIL
Genre: Young Adult- religious cults 


A gripping YA novel about an ordinary girl who is unsuspectingly inducted into a secretive modern-day cult.

'A brilliant, searing trip into the world of cults and brainwashing. Her best book yet.' - Justine Larbalestier


I had cults- I can say that because most cultists wont be reading this blog. They wont be allowed too. I went to school with a great young woman who was in a cult. It was heartbreaking. This stunning, talented, beautiful, intelligent young woman- who could not move without being observed and spoken about. She had zero freedom and her amazing personality was engulfed by rules and elders who ensured they were kept. Julianna- I have never forgotten you as I promised I would not! I hope in the mix of your controlled life you have found space to be and explore and journey. As promised- if you call- I will come- still!
Mate Im sad now!!!!
I hate cults!!!

Ruby Jane Galbraith is empty. Her family has been torn apart and it's all her fault.

The only thing that makes sense to her is Fox - a gentle new friend who is wise, soulful and clever, yet oddly naive about the ways of the world. He understands what she's going through and he offers her a chance to feel peace. Fox belongs to a group called the Institute of the Sublime - and Ruby can't stay away from him. So she is also drawn in to what she too late discovers is a terrifying secretive community that is far from the ideal world she expected.

Can Ruby find the courage to escape? Is there any way she can save Fox too? And is there ever really an escape from the far-reaching influence of the Institute of the Sublime?
