Help me find more books I would like!

I realized I've just read and enjoyed several books built around the same theme/structure, and would like to find more. They generally involve a girl/young woman growing up sometime in the 20th century, usually in America, often told from the perspective of the character as a grown-up looking back and reflecting. Examples inside.

Books I've read recently and (mostly) enjoyed:
"We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves" - Karen Joy Fowler
"Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls" - Anton DiSclafani
"Last Summer of the Camperdowns" - Elizabeth Kelly
"Silver Star" and "The Glass Castle" - Jeanette Walls
"Among Others" - Jo Walton
If I liked these, what else should I read? Also open to similar stories about boys/young men, autobiographies, books not set in America. Thanks!
