When We Were On Fire by Addie Zierman. As a teen in the 1990's, Zierman was immersed in Christian culture: attending prayer rallies, going on youth outreach trips, making vows of chastity, and trying to be everything she thought God (and her boyfriend) wanted her to be. After marriage and a year teaching in China, Zierman returned disillusioned with Christianity and desperately seeking friendship and community. Her struggles to to find meaningful connections and her problems with alcohol and depression are depicted honestly and unflinchingly in this book; at times it's tough to read about someone in so much pain. But there's a lot of hope, too, and she writes with humility and with grace for others and herself.
