1 Review
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.
