Call Number: CT 3262 .W47 E38 2018
Publication Date: 2018-02-20
Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she taught herself enough mathematics, grammar, and science to take the ACT and was admitted to Brigham Young University. 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.
