A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

by Betty Smith
List(s):"Carp 500"
Category: "Fiction - General"
Year of Publication:1943
Date Read:10/31/1997
Notes:Francie Nolan, avid reader, penny-candy connoisseur and adroit observer of human nature, has much to ponder in colorful, turn-of-the-century Brooklyn. She grows up with a sweet, tragic father, a severely realistic mother and an aunt who gives her love too freely — to men, and to a brother who will always be the favored child. Francie learns early the meaning of hunger and the value of a penny.
My Rating: 6
