        I read this for the challenge and thought it was an emotionally moving story.  I can’t imagine living in a city dumb and not being able to figure out what making my kid so sick.  I thought the ambition of the mother and the connection with her landlord was very moving and brought tears to my eyes as she made strides to learn to read.  A very eye opening story that made me thankful for the blessing I have.

          My mom’s book club read this a few months ago and she kept telling me I needed to read it. So glad I did! I don’t know what I expected, but not quite this. But I loved it.

            I thought this book was going to be so depressing. Instead it turned out to be so inspiring. Wonderful book!
