Icon: A Novel 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.

It was a good book. A bit predictable. Probably a really good book for a teen which I am not.

This is the best book I've read in a long time. It left me in tears at summer camp. It really helps you understand how it is in North Korea.

Enjoyed ICON very much. Reads like an Orthodox version of 1984. Lots of suspense and provides much to think about. Something like this could happen to Orthodoxy!
