Jinger became a bestseller and so did her sister. However, the books seem quite different. Jinger steered clear of telling all about her mom and dad. Additionally, when Tamron Hall spoke with her, she seemed reluctant to comment on the actual contents of the book by her sister. Instead, she talked about how she admired her because it was “hard” to open up.
Jill Dillard mentioned her brother Josh Duggar in her book. Taking her fans back to the days of his molestation, she seemed angry that her mom and dad didn’t sort his problem out as a teenager. Angrily, after he was convicted for CSAM, she wrote, “[I felt] sad that Josh had become such a monster… Actually, her aunt Deanna and her cousin Amy previously expressed similar sentiments.
