Educated is one of the best books I have read in a very long time.
When I finished it I immediately listened to it again. It was like I couldn't believe some of the details described and wanted to confirm that was what I had heard.
A story of sadness but also happy times in the family, physical abuse by a brother who sounds like he too suffers from some form of mental illness and not just the father. A mother who tells her daughter she believes her stories of abuse but then denies them as she refuses to go against her husband.
Tara's life is one of triumph against all odds. A person who was denied an education in her youth and yet took herself farther than most people who have all the benefits of growing up in a normal family.
I would love to hear of what this lady is able to accomplish in the coming years. I look forward to a second book.
