This is the book that made me become a reader. It was on the list of summer reading we could do for school before 7th grade. I was absorbed in it. I try to reread every few years. It just keeps getting better.


I reread this book at least once every few years. It was a favorite of mine as a young teen, and I have found more to love about it as I get older and my experience and world view matures. This book is great for all ages from pre-teen through adult.

An all time favorite

Got this book in sixth grade and have read it so many times my copy is barely holding together with tape. Every time I read it again I understand something deeper in the story. Wonderful.

great reviews

My mom has raved about this book for years, so I had to finally check it out!

Modern Classic

Probably one of the best books I have ever read, Betty Smith's detailed story of life in Brooklyn is amazing
