On Troubled Childhood

I believe we’re held together by fragile connections and too often these are broken in childhood," says Fran Kimmel.

Kimmel's award-winning novel, The Shore Girl, is a smart, sharp story of a young girl growing up amid tough circumstance.

Shore Girl was one of my favorite novels of 2012, and I'm delighted to introduce you to Kimmel at 3 Good Books, a series in which I give writers a topic (related to their work) and ask them to share their favorite books on that theme. 

What's your favorite book about the tough world of growing up?
