AFTERSHOCKS by @NadiaOwusu1 is officially my favorite memoir everβ€”Β #amquerying writers this is the perfect example of how to share stories with specificity, vulnerability, and, of course, beautiful writing. And I love the world history woven into the protagonist's journey. #MSWL

For memoir, LONG LIVE THE TRIBE OF FATHERLESS GIRLS by T. Kira Madden blew me away, and two all-time favorites are EDUCATED by @tarawestover and WILD GAME by @adriennebrodeur

I also adore memoirs β€” please see my fiction guidelines for these stories because (a) I’m drawn to the same themes in novels as I am in memoirs; and (b) a good memoir reads like a novel.
