Allegra Maud Goldman by Edith Konecky, Alix Kates Shulman

Beloved by readers of all ages since its first appearance in 1976, Allegra Maud Goldman tracks the coming to consciousness of a feisty and sharply observant Jewish girl growing up in 1930s Brooklyn. Allegra encounters the usual trials of bourgeois childhood—the confinement of first schooldays, the confusion of fumbled sex education, the humiliations of dress-shopping—and a world that seems determined to stifle her creativity and aspirations. She faces it all with a wisdom and wit that both delight and inspire.

This is one of my favorite books ever. It is amazing to me that it is/was not a bestseller. Well, it shouldn't be amazing; most bestsellers are pure and horrible crap. This is literature at it's finest. A brilliant buildingsroman by a very interesting and special woman, who was also a very interesting a special little girl.
