Chasing Burfferlies is a beautiful memoir written by Ashley Bisman, who expresses her devastating loss of her father due to the 9/11 terrorist attack of the trade center. She realizes that things will not be the same; she tells us how Jeff, her father, never came home. We then journey through watching Ashley pass through her teen and young adult life dealing with finding her identity and all the profiling she faces.
Her quest to live a happy life, find a meaningful relationship, and all the similar things we desire is not anything out of the ordinary, but what becomes the deciding factor is the question that remains in her head, saying, “can I?”
I found the literature to be written well. The honesty stood out for me and the emotionally charged memoir made me want to read the book till the end. Her message is clear and it was lovely to read along how Ashley dealt with every obstacle.
I recommend this book to memoir fans and those who wish to learn how it was for those who lost someone on 9/11.Tweet
