really liked it
Recommended for: catholics and neophytes

"She was, as she tells it- and she is unabashed in the telling- quite pragmatic about college. She lazed about,. soaking up her neighborhood, skipped classes that held no interest, seemed to find in friendship her real awakening. Officialy speaking, she turned in a tolerable performance...worked so to speak her own side of the street." Introduction by Daniel Barrigan.

Sounds like I'm reading about myself. I think it was a great telling of her life without sounding too preachy. It makes the greatness of her life more easy to grasp.
