A Tree Grows in Brooklyn: 15 - 56
THIS IS AN AMAZING WONDERFUL BEAUTIFUL FUNNY UGLY BRILLIANT RAUNCHY DELICATE PRACTICALLY PERFECT BOOK!
If you are a person who has ever liked a book (and admit it - even if you are not a "reader" you liked HOLES and you liked those MAGIC TREEHOUSE books you read in second grade) you must give this book a chance. Once you get to chapter 24 you will be hooked. And if not 24, definitely chapter 27 where Francie gets a Christmas three thrown at her head!
And remember that these are short little chapters - you can easily read one first thing in the morning before you crawl out of bed. Besides, its summer - you're probably sleeping until 10:30 anyway.
