After reading T W Neal’s Freckled then Jeannette Walls’ The Glass Castle, Educated was a natural transition. This story of perseverance, determination, and healing held me from beginning to end. The ending, for me, was the most important. Self-awareness and acceptance are key to a healthy mentality. Whether or not Tara sees her own courage, millions of others found strength to accept their own childhoods as they read her story. Not all can share their stories, but there is something so valuable in reading about those who can.
Could not put the book down. Excellent.
While Tara's childhood and life experiences are extreme, I feel I know others who share common ground with her ... family situations that are toxic yet keeps drawing those affected back home and back into the chaos. An excellent read.
Westover has give us a precious gift with this memoir. Her struggle to come to terms with her Self in light of a convoluted, repressive, even dangerous background is gripping. Highly recommended.
