WTF, God? is an inspirational memoir by Michelle N. Onuorah. In it, she explores her experiences as a young adult and the ways in which her faith guided her through decisions and changes.
The writing style is informal and passionate. Onuorah makes frequent reference back to the Bible, with references given for follow up. The book is more or less chronological, but also structured by the key lessons she has learnt through her experiences, and wishes to convey to the reader.
The word that keeps coming to mind when I think about this book is generous. In sharing her experiences, Onuorah is offering her reader hope and guidance. The tone is positive and optimistic, even when she is talking about struggles with mental health and rejection.
I would recommend this book to anyone, particularly young adults, who are struggling to find direction in their life. Throughout the book, Onuorah focuses on her faith and how her strong relationship with God helped her to make sense of her life and accept the things which she cannot control. Reading about the setbacks and delays she experienced inspires patience and hope.
For me, this is a five star book. It’s encouraged me to think, and comforted me. I’m glad I read it!
