This book is a fantastic read that helps us delve into the grim reality of life as faced by millions around the globe. Written by Carolina Maria de Jesus as her journal that she meticulously kept in the 1950's, the book shows us the dark side of living in São Paulo's favelas, so unlike the vision often presented to American viewers. For anyone who has studied Brazilian Portuguese, the language of the book will ring familiar to one's ears. As a literary experience, this book is cathartic in that I can appreciate so much more what I have and the trials that I do not have go through like she did.

An excellent and fast read.
This book is written in a simple Portuguese that I can understand and shows clearly the condition of the favelas of Brazil, as well as the condition of fallen human nature the world over. I gave it four stars instead of five because the style starts to get repetitive.
