Did anyone read the book that Julia Haart wrote about her life? I just started reading it and am very confused by her story. Sure, its very analytical and so far has quotes from Torah sources even though she supposedly never learned it but she also managed to have a boyfriend, get non-Jewish books from the public library, have enough babysitting money for a private phone in her room all the while claiming that she didnt have time for anything because she was busy taking care of her siblings and being a mommy to them (even though they had a live in aid at some point). And this all happened while being uber frum and being popular because of her frumkeit. She also didnt get much secular classes but still got to take the PSAT's, etc. Perhaps I am not understanding the timeline (or its too early in the book for me to fully understand whats happeneing) because she keeps going back and forth with her stories so I was hoping that someone who read the whole book can clarify this.
If you read it already, what were your thoughts about it and do you think these bizarre stories are actually believeable?

Simple — she lived a middle of the road frum life, but she thinks it’s not interesting enough for readers of memoirs of ex-chassidim.

No. Don't find it or her believable.
