Educated is an unforgettable memoir of a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist Mormon family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University. It is the account of the struggle for self-invention, of fierce family loyalty and the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to improve one's circumstances.
