Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt

Angela’s Ashes is a nonfiction novel about a young boy growing up in Limerick, Ireland. His life is full of sadness, poverty, and the occasional miracle.  He loses so much throughout his childhood, only to be successful in the end. This book is moving to say the least. It is written incredibly well, and slightly humorous. Although this is a book I would only read once, it was worthwhile to read it at all.
