really liked it
Recommended to Joyce by: my wonderful uncle John
Recommended for: anyone
Read in January, 1965

This book has a very special place in my heart as does the movie which was one of the first directed by the great Kazan. Lovely and touching, Francie haunted me as a little girl when I first read this. I wanted so much for her to attend the better school. I am a sucker for the "underdog makes it" kind of book
