it was amazing
Recommended for: yes
Read in August, 2009

Once I started this book I was unable to put it down. I found it horrifying and yet fascinating and real. It was very well written; realistic and not cloying. I very highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good read.
Our beloved Frank McCourt said of this book: "The unblinking look of one child at a hard world. Written gloriously & movingly."
He's right.
