Staff recommended: All the great hype you have ever heard about this book is completely true. And it's even better than that. Truly. You will not be sorry to have read this! ~ Elaine.

"Born to Mormon survivalist parents opposed to public education, Westover never attended school and spent her days working in her father’s junkyard—until she decided to get an education and experience the outside world. Her story gets to the heart of what education is: the perspective to see one’s life through new eyes and the will to change it."
