I absolutely loved this book and got so much out of it. Westover's life story is disturbing at times, and her writing style is riveting. I found her to be surprisingly relatable, considering how little I thought we had in common. There were several strong moments that stood out in the book, but my favorite is when Westover talks about how the sacrifices she made to get an education were to have the right to hear and read and understand many perspectives and points of view, and then, to create her own mind. I found that really striking and powerful.
