This beloved modern classic documents the lives and hardships of an African American family living in Depression-era Harlem. While 12-year-old Francie Coffin’s world and family threaten to fall apart, this remarkable young heroine must call upon her own wit and endurance to survive amidst the treacheries of racism and sexism, poverty and violence.

I first read this book when I was around 13yrs old I picked it up and could not put it down! I told all my daughters about this book as they grew up my oldest daughter is now 34 yrs old and my youngest is 12 going on 13 I told her I would find this book and get it for her to read. I will never forget reading this book. I remember putting myself into this story and everyday I rushed home from school to read more of the book. After a few days when I had finished reading the book I used to read it on the weekends over and over again. It was worth reading then and it is for sure worth reading now with my youngest daughter. I can't wait to go into the store and purchase it with her. This is what we will read on our mother daughter days! EXCELLENT READING!!!! BUY THIS BOOK!!! Big mama New York
