2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Washing of Brains by Johnny Townsend (194-07-21-2016)

1) A lovely writing style, and each story was full of unique, engaging characters. I was drawn in right away and had a hard time putting it down!

2) Bizarre collection of mostly ex-Mormon stories that some may find hard to believe. Informative and at the same time immensely entertaining.
