Wow. What a ride. It’s astounding that Westover lived to tell the story of her escape from a childhood of neglect and casual violence. Articulate and introspective, she gradually breaks the psychological hold of her mentally ill father and discovers the world outside her Idaho mountain home, where schools and modern medicine are not considered instruments of the Illuminati.
