in my life. This remarkable novel taught me some very valuable life lessons. Through Betty Smith's words I learned to appreciate what I have, established a link between myself and my grandparent, and I discovered the importance of an exceptional education. Betty Smith is an impressive author and I would recommend A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to anybody who is looking for a book that will extensively change their view of themselves and the world.
