Tara's memoir of life growing up in a weird family dominated by a crazy Mormon father who was deeply suspicious of all government agencies, didn't believe in medicine (only herbs) and wasn't keen on any of the seven kids attending school. Tara was also physically and mentally abused by an older brother, but in spite of everything she gets to uni and does well academically but struggles to ever reconcile with family.
Amazing story. Very moving.
