Educated by Tara Westover

Tara Westover has lived a like I could never imagine.  Growing up in a survivalist Mormon family, she never went to school and doesn’t even know the date of her own birthday.  Somehow she managed to teach herself enough to get into college.  Her story is both terrifying and inspirational. More than just a discussion of religion, Westover looks at mental health and family, questioning what it means to be a member of a family.  I can’t stop thinking about her and what she has been through.  I didn’t realize how much I have taken for granted in my life.  Westover is so incredibly inspirational.
