A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
I had never heard of this book before I picked it up on a whim at a half price store, and it sat on my shelf until the book group decided to read it in January. I'm so glad that I finally got the opportunity.
It reminds me so much of what I would have read as a kid when I ran out of American Girl and Dear America books, and I so wish I could have had it then. I really think that Francie is my historical spirit animal. I want to take her home and give her lots of coffee and books and attention.
