In the chapter, Westover states that in October of 2001, her father won a contract to construct modern granaries in Malad City. “It was a big job for a small outfit—the crew was just Dad, Shawn, Luke, and Audrey’s husband, Benjamin” (Westover 122). It provided the family with an opportunity to make some good income to meet their needs and boost the quality of their life.
As Westover worked mostly during the night, Tyler called her one day to ask if she was studying for the ACT but she told him she was not as she did not know math. Tyler reprimanded her saying that she had money and could, therefore, buy books and learn. Although Westover’s ambitions were not geared towards college as she expected to be married by the time she reached the age of nineteen, Tyler was able to motivate her to try and study.
