Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Simon's 1982 memoir made several best books lists. It follows her own life as an immigrant child growing into adolescence in the Bronx. This remains for "general readers and mature YAs" (LJ 5/1/82).

This is a really good book. I read it and it really opened my eyes to the type of life people in her situation were in. It was interesting to see how different the society was in that time frame.
