Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover: Conversation Starters
“Educated” is the tale of Tara Westover’s discovery of self and a world she had never known. Raised as a survivalist in the mountains of Idaho, Westover never knew much of the outside world. She spent her time in the wilderness preparing for the end of the world with her family. Illnesses were treated with herbal medicine. Food was gathered and prepared by the family. The first time she heard of the world outside her bubble was when her older brother decided to leave this isolated life and go to college. He returned with tales of a whole other world outside their little community and Tara was fascinated. She did all she could to prepare for the ACT—a difficult task having never received a formal education—and she got into a university. “Educated” is a memoir about Tara’s journey into the great unknown of the real world.
“Educated” became a New York Times Bestseller not long after its released and made Amazon’s top 100 Best Sellers book list. No small feat for the first time author.

EDUCATED: A Memoir
Thanks to Random House and NetGalley for providing me with an advanced reading copy of EDUCATED: A Memoir by Tara Westover.
Tara Westover is lucky to be alive. She tells her story in bits and pieces with huge gaps in between. Her mother was a self taught herbalist and mid-wife, and her father was a survivalist, distrusting the American government, schools, hospitals, and public education.
Tara is the youngest child, and was raised, as were her siblings, to obey her parents, work hard, and follow the Mormon religion. Just like the television series "Blue Blood" starring Tom Selleck, her family strongly believed in "putting family first."
Tara Westover learned to be careful around her brother Shawn, and her father because they could be nice and loving one moment, and in the next second become dangerously violent. Years later she recognizes these outbursts as "Bi-polar."
EDUCATED has received lots of positive publicity and praise. There are several horrific happenings and unbelievable occurrences in this memoir.

This is not the actual book
I’m actually just dumb and thought I was buying the real book instead of just discussion about the book which is more my fault than the actual product, but I’ll leave this rating and review to help others from the same thing.
