By Tara Westover
NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, AND BOSTON GLOBE BESTSELLER An unforgettable novel of a young woman who, after being shut out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to receive a Ph.D. from Cambridge University This is an incredible story that is genuinely inspirational. It’s much better than you thought it was going to be. ONE OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’S FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR • BILL GATES’ HOLIDAY READING LIST • FINALIST: National Book Critics Circle Award In Autobiography and John Leonard Prize For Best First Book • PEN/Jean Stein Book Award • Los Angeles Times Book Prize Tara Westover was seventeen years old when she first entered a school, having been raised by survivalists in Idaho’s mountains. There was no one to ensure Tara’s children got an education, and no one to interfere when one of her older brothers became abusive because her family was so cut off from the rest of society.
Tara wanted to find a different way of life after her brother was accepted into college. Her thirst for knowledge changed her life, bringing her through oceans and continents to Harvard and Cambridge Universities. Only then did she begin to wonder if she had gone too far if there was still a way back. Despite the uniqueness of [Westover’s] upbringing, the questions she raises in her book are universal: How much of ourselves can we offer to those we love? And how much do we betray them for them to mature?” The Washington Post named it one of the best books of the year.

His stories show how these “soft skills” can be developed when meeting or exceeding academic expectations in the twenty-first century.
