This book is a moving autobiographical memoir about a young woman’s growth from an insecure, bullied child who did not set foot into a classroom until she was 17 years old to a woman who earned a Ph.D. from Cambridge University. Westover documents her struggle to secure a sense of who she wants to be independently of polarizing ideologies. In the process, she shares keen insights into the experience gaps that separate rural and urban Americans.
