I’ve read a lot of memoirs in 2023. "Will," hands down, is my favorite memoir of 2023. I was born in the 90s, and my first introduction to Will Smith was on the show "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, specifically West Philadelphia, although I didn't spend most of my days on the playground. Therefore, it was really cool to hear some of the references in the book that I am so familiar with - Wynnefield, Overbrook, and some of the Philly slang he was referring to wasn't foreign to me at all!
