An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University

Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

“Beautiful and propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of [Tara Westover’s] childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up?”—Vogue


“Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.”—The New York Times Book Review

    One of the best books I have ever read! Read it during a beach vacation in just 4 days.

    One of the most gripping, eye-opening, and insightful memoirs I have read in a long time. Her book is full of compassion and understanding. The vulnerability one must face in order to share such personal details of one’s life is significant, and I am grateful that Tara was willing to share her enriching story.
  • OMG How was this book a big hit?

    It’s just a memoir of a dysfunctional mormon family; that is, a boring mormon family, not the fun, polygamist kind. Told without humor or original insight. It’s also a tale of how pretty white girls have prizes and opportunities thrown at them. There’s an old SNL sketch starring Eddie Murphy called “White Like Me.” It really explains how this author ends up at Cambridge.
  • Open minded greatness

    This book is hands down the best memoir I’ve ever read. I think all women can see parts of themselves in Taras story and her triumph over adversity. It’s a must read!
  • Very touching!
