Ingrid Rojas Contreras grew up in Colombia in the 1980s and ‘90s, a time marred by political upheaval and violence that inflicted lasting emotional scars. Her grandfather passed magical gifts down to various members of the family, including the abilities to speak to the dead, heal the sick, and see into the future. After Rojas Contreras experienced a bike accident that caused amnesia, her family hoped she, too, might gain access to “the secrets.” In her memoir, a National Book Award finalist, she recalls working to recover her memory and traveling back to Colombia to relearn her family’s unique history. —Angela HauptB
