#1 NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, AND BOSTON GLOBE BESTSELLER One of the most acclaimed books of our time: an unforgettable memoir about a young woman who kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a Ph.D. from Cambridge University

An amazing story, and truly inspiring. It s even better than you ve heard. Bill Gates

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW ONE OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA S FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR BILL GATES S HOLIDAY READING LIST FINALIST: National Book Critics Circle s Award In Autobiography and John Leonard Prize For Best First Book PEN/Jean Stein Book Award Los Angeles Times Book Prize

Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

Beautiful and propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of [Westover s] childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up? Vogue
