FIRST THINGS FIRST:
Reading records are due on THURSDAY. They should filled in completely on the Q3 Weeks 1-5 tab with accurately and with integrity. Let’s look at someone’s reading record…
Also, remember that the online orders for Dee Romito’s books are due by Friday. How cool to be able to get a signed book, right?
There are a couple things I’ve been meaning to show you on Instagram….

An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University

Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

Thoughts…

Absolutely captivating. The things that Tara went through and survived with her family is almost unbelievable. I can’t imagine being in a family like that with a father who was all-powerful…and mentally ill. That’s a dangerous combination.

How did she press on?

How did she survive?

It took an immense level of internal strength to pull away from the culture of her family.

I hope someday you listen to or read this.
