Mr. Peters holding his book. By: Frances Bottorff

Mr. Peters, an English teacher found a very intriguing to read over the summer. It is called Educated by Tara Westover. 

It is a great book. It’s A Memoir book about a young girl growing up in the woods of Idaho. And she’s a very uneducated little girl and her family is very religious. They never go to doctors or anything like that. They don’t believe in it. They think God will take care of everything. And It shows her whole life story of how she goes from that culture all the way to Harvard and Cambridge to study abroad and is successful. And it is a fantastic read. I think it’s just a beautiful portrait of, of how education and how it can change a person.”

 While this book is pretty in-depth, Mr. Peters would recommend it.
