Raised Right by Alisa Harris
Harris's childhood years were exactly what you'd envision for a girl raised by conservative parents. She was home-schooled, attended a very traditional church, and spent many days picketing abortion clinics.
College forced her to interact with people who believed differently than she did, while also opening her eyes to the state of politics.
Harris uses stories from her childhood to illustrate the contrasting beliefs.Anybody who was raised in a strong evangelical environment can certainly relate to the many extreme beliefs the author discusses and quite possibly they, too, have found themselves in the midst of questioning those beliefs as they reached adulthood.
Harris touches on many topics from abortion, war, economics and the virtue of belonging to a party simply because your parents do.
