This is by far the best memoir I have ever read. Absolutely astounding. If you read one memoir this year, Tara Westover's Educated should be it. The book takes place from the 80s to present day and is about a extremely fundamentalist Morman family that does not believe in education and modern medicine. As Tara gets older, she decides she wants to pursue going to college and becoming educated. When she first gets to college, she literally doesn't know what the Holocaust is. Her story is so unbelievable. She goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge. Read this book. Immediately. 5 stars
