I have got one nonfiction book for you: Educated. This book always about this girl whose father didn't let her to go to school. It is set in the twentieth century and twenty-first and is set in America. It wasn't exactly what you're asking for, but later on she stands up, puts her foot down and decides to study for college at age 17. In my opinion, she did something very big. A seventeen year old, who has had no experience in a classroom and instead of starting her junior year at high school, has enough courage to start her freshman year in college, living alone for the first time, to get herself an education. The author is Tara Westover and writes it from her own POV.
I want a book about the urge to do something extraordinary, to become something big, even though it is not possible for one. It can be both non fiction and fiction.
