I remember reading this book as a little girl and wishing I was little Anna in the story. I could relate to her so much, and even now, I find pieces of Anna in me. I recommend this read. It is, by far, one of the best books I've ever read (up there with Black Boy, by Richard Wright and Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens.)
It is one of those books you can read over and over and over and never get enough.
(unfortunately, I don't own any of these books, but I plan on it, someday. And I will read them twice and three times and four times.)
