Title: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Author: Betty Smith
This is a classic American story of a girl growing up in Brooklyn in the early 1900’s. It gets to the heart of childhood experiences and the family dynamics in that time and place. The story takes you through the family’s interaction in poverty and in better days. I had heard about this book and am so glad I finallty read it. I felt like I was actually seeing the characters.
