Notes-Front-WebNotes From My Phone*

In Notes From My Phone* (Mason Jar Press, 2016), Junot opens up her phone and her life to you. This collection of essays, to-do lists, vignettes, reminders and dreams mixes heart-felt memoir with the everyday marginalia that makes up a twenty-something’s life and day planner. The everyday is placed side-by-side with the universal, and in doing so, transcends to be more than the sum of its parts. If, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans,” then Notes From My Phone*, celebrates life in all its tedious and troubling beauty.

Michelle, the twenty-four year old narrator, reflects back to her four year old self, placing her memories in the context of all she’s learned since they occurred. The collection is a unique twist on the classic “coming of age” story, in which Michelle explores and sorts through the pieces of her life that have changed with time and growth, and the pieces that are different, but kind of the same.
