My Body is a Book of Rules - Elissa Washuta

Washuta's self-reflection in this compilation of her own stories incorporate a variety of provocative experiences, such as sexual trauma, her identity as an American Indian, mental illness, post-grad confusion, and more. While this is an emotion-filled read, Washuta's writing brings to attention the importance of conversations and contemplation around mental health, sexualized violence, and ethnic identity. Her text stands out with its blunt style and raw rehashing of a traumatic past, leaving readers aware of the reality of such struggles as a female minority.
