Oh, To Be Pure Again will resonate with anyone who has ever had to question what they’ve been taught in order to become their authentic selves.” – Freddie Ashley

SYNOPSIS

FAITH & PURITY COLLIDE WITH SEX & REBELLION

During a hot summer at a fundamentalist church camp in Texas, an idealistic young counselor works to shepherd the campers in the senior girls’ cabin through a delicate phase of self-discovery, only to be confronted with challenges to her own faith. The young women find themselves crashing into the uneasy tension between obedience and rebellion in a culture that is obsessed with their sexual purity.

"Rockwell's writing is on point."
