One of the greatest books ever written
This wasn't written by a famous poet or a famous scalar but by a German immigrant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn named Betty Smith. She may not have been famous when writing it but her ability to paint a picture in your mind with her words made her one famous lady! It has since been turned into a play and a movie. I got the recommendation from a dear friend to read the book and after the 2nd chapter I didn't want it to end. The trials this girl goes through and the way it all plays out it is just wonderful. This is honestly my favorite book.
