Read this book that is both delightful and heart-wrenching at the same time, about a young girl growing up in impossible circumstances. If you like biographical fiction, you'll love this story.
Book Recommendation: Noble Vision.
I recently lost an entire day to this book. I literally couldn't stop reading it after about the fourth chapter or so. You've been warned.
Review: Would You Please Stop Writing, Please?

Recommendation: If you'd like to learn a foreign language, I'd recommend checking out DuoLingo. It easy to use, it's free, and it uses pictures, audio, and text.
