Cheapism says...

“An instant New York Times bestseller “Educated” is a memoir set in rural Idaho. Tara Westover tells the story of her upbringing in Buck’s Peak, a mountainous region where she fights to leave her survivalist Mormon family and the sheltered life she knew to attend college and receive a formal education. Westover returns to her family’s settlement in Idaho multiple times throughout the book even after she escapes, eventually realizing that she no longer feels at home there.”

Definitely sounds like a story that would come from Idaho... or Utah. Buck’s Peak is almost right in the middle, located between Pocatello, Idaho and Logan, Utah.

Tara’s story sounds really intense, but possibly uplifting and powerful. And again, if you’re looking for a more local, “hometown” read, consider checking out this #1 International Bestselling book from Idaho that has been “flying off the shelves” and keeping it’s rank as a bestseller on Amazon.
