really liked it
Read from June 27 to July 28, 2011

An American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century.

In an interview the author said, "To live, to struggle, to be in love with life- in love with all life holds, joyful or sorrowful- is fulfillment. The fullness of life is open to all of us." That's exactly what this book shows us and is exactly why I liked it so much.
