It chronicles her "early years of neglect, molestation, and abuse," marriage at 17, and her departure from the group, according to a press release. She left in part to help her 16-year-old daughter, who was living on the streets and addicted to drugs. Read more about the book on her blog.

The signing is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 30 at the Salt Lake County Library's Viridian Events Center, 8030 S. 1825 West in West Jordan.

The group the reality TV stars of "Sister Wives," by the way, also claim membership in the AUB, Decker's former sect.
