Variations on the Death of a Grandparent: An Analysis of Youth Memoir
In this excerpt, a youth memoirist effectively incorporates dialogue and tangible details while tying together the memory of a childhood game and the reported details of her father’s death. More significantly, this excerpt showcases a youth perspective on a tragic current event. Published in The Best Teen Writing of 2018, “Last Words” was written by 16-year-old Laila Shadid, and detailed her reaction to the death of her father, two-time Pulitzer-Prize-winning Washington Post correspondent Anthony Shadid, who died in 2012 while covering the Syrian Civil War (Farhi and Sheridan, 2012).
