This was one of the most inspiring memoirs that I have ever read. We read about Tara Westover’s personal experiences living in a very strict, radical Mormon family. It’s a very empowering book about her journey out of her prison-like life under her radical, abusive father. She talks about all of the challenges she faced as her brainwashed religious side fought against the other side of her that wanted an education and wanted to leave her home. You get to read about her journey to getting an education after not being taught much as a young girl.

The things Tara Westover went through are so terrible and I think it’s really remarkable how she still managed to pull through and get an education. This fact just makes this book even more inspiring to me as I was just in awe while reading about her tenacity. I was also very shocked at the treatment she received from her father (and even some of the rest of the family as well).

Overall, I definitely recommend this book for anyone who likes inspiring memoirs or motivational books. I thought it was a very interesting & worthwhile read.
