"Educated: A Memoir" is Tara Westover's gripping journey from a childhood in rural Idaho with survivalist parents to the halls of Cambridge University. Born into a family led by a paranoid father who feared the end of days, Westover was raised without any formal schooling and had limited access to the outside world.

In spite of numerous obstacles, including physical abuse and familial opposition, Tara found a way to educate herself. She taught herself enough math, grammar, and science to take the ACT and was admitted to Brigham Young University, igniting a passion for learning that carried her to Harvard and Cambridge.

In this memoir, Westover recounts her pursuit of knowledge, her struggles to assimilate into the mainstream, and the difficulty of reconciling her desire for education with her loyalty to her family. "Educated" tells the inspiring story of Westover's transformation through education, and how she ultimately had to choose between her family and her future.

"Educated" is a thought-provoking exploration of the power of education to open doors and change lives. It's a tale about the transformative power of education and the price of progress. It's a testament to the desire to learn and the strength it takes to break away from destructive familial patterns.
