About the book: 

In the spirit of books like Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird and Sharon Jones’ Burn After Writing, YOU: THE STORY: A Writer’s Guide to Craft Through Memory will provide aspiring writers with a roadmap to crafting compelling stories by encouraging them to look inward and excavate their own memories in order to discover authentic voices and compelling details. Throughout the book, Sepetys masterfully weaves in stories from her own life to illustrate various aspects of writing, from character development to perspective to setting, and then inspires readers to mine their own experiences through a series of writing prompts and exercises.
