If you wanted to retell a true event or experience, you would write a 'recount': it can be written in the first or third person. For example, in 'Sea and Sardinia', the author D. H. Lawrence recounts his brief excursion to the island of Sardinia in 1921.
There are a great many recount books on the market. Next time you are in a library or bookshop, see how many you can spot. Even in the larger supermarkets, there is usually a book aisle with famous people's autobiographies. A book about the life of a well-known footballer or TV celebrity and how they came to be famous would be in the form of a recount - even if it was written by another person.
Do this middle school English quiz and learn how to recognize when you can write a recount.
