Absorbing, surprising, disturbing, amazing--lots of words spring to mind. These are 6 word memoirs by teens. Here are some of the ones I flagged as I read.
FIVE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND TWO OBITUARIES.
YOU'RE THE PARENT. ACT LIKE ONE.
EXAGGERATION IS THE SPICE OF LIFE.
GOD ABANDONED ME, SO I RECIPROCATED.
I NEVER GOT MY HOGWARTS LETTER. (could be Hank Green's memoir?)
WOULD BE SLUT GIVEN THE CHANCE.
YOU MADE ME STRONGER. THANKS, RAPIST.
MEASURED OUT MY LIFE IN LITERATURE.
LIFE IS FULL OF "AWKWARD TURTLE" MOMENTS.
INSERT MELODRAMATIC CLICHE-TEEN ICK HERE.
Not only would I love to have kids write their own, I want to see them do something like write character descriptions using the 6 word format. Or take some of these memoirs and tie them to a character from a book they have read.
Mind is teeming. Must write down.
