It's Berkeley in the 1960s, and Martha Goldenthal's home life is a cauldron of kooky ideas, impossible demands, and explosive physical violence. Can she overcome her obstacles and make it to college? Shrug is the absorbing, harrowing, and ultimately uplifting story of one young woman’s journey toward independence.

"Gripping from beginning to end, this beautifully written work is impossible to put down.” — The BookLife Prize

“As persuasive as the memoirs Educated and The Glass Castle, Shrug yanks at the heartstrings.” — Carolyn McVickar Edwards, author of Return of the Light and The Storyteller's Goddess

“A book that slowly creeps up on you before grabbing you by the throat and
demanding that you pay attention.” 
— Grant Leishman, Readers’ Favorite
