The Boston Girl - Anita Diamant - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Boston Girl:

The colorful life of Addie Baum, as told to her granddaughter.

My favorite Anita Diamant quote from the book:

"You know the saying about how revenge tastes better cold? Well, it tastes just as good warm."

Questions to ponder while reading Anita Diamant'sThe Boston Girl:

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Do you get along with your mother?

My review of the book The Boston Girl:

A great "this was my life" story.

I very much related to Addie.

I want to see *that* Boston - although I definitely want indoor plumbing.
