Story of a Soul by St. Therese of Lisieux (Church Doctor)

This is a classic, and most catholic libraries will have multiple copies. St. Therese of Lisieux died at the age of 24 in 1897. Mother Therese of Calcutta named herself after her.

By the Apostolic Letter Divini Amoris Scientia ("The Science of Divine Love") of October 19, 1997, Pope John Paul II declared her one of the thirty-three Doctors of the Universal Church, one of only three women so named (the others being Teresa of Avila (Saint Teresa of Jesus) and Catherine of Siena). Thérèse was the only saint to be given recognition as a Doctor of the Church during Pope John Paul II's pontificate. --
