38. The Most Beautiful Girl: A True Story of a Dad, a Daughter, and the Healing Power of Music by Tamara Saviano
The Most Beautiful Girl is a memoir by Grammy Award winning country music producer Tamara Saviano. She writes about the tumultuous relationship she had with the man she believed to be her father for much of her life, and what lead to them not speaking for the decade leading up to his death. She weaves in the importance of music to her father and in her life growing up, and what lead her to eventually pursue a career in the music industry leaving her family and friends far behind. I liked the musical bent to this memoir even as I’ve grown tired of these types of memoirs in general. If you are into memoirs of difficult families though, then you should enjoy this one. I give it a 6 out of 10.
