A story told in the first person means the main subject of the story, or in some cases the narrator, is telling the story. For example, if the story says, I went to the store and I bought something. that is considered telling the story in the first person. YOU (whomever "you" may be) are the person explaining what's happening. Make sense? A story in the first person may be true, or it may be fiction, and the writer is just pretending to be a real person, however, the story is a novel and not real. It just depends.
