A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

by Betty Smith, 493 p.

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.
