Book Beginnings on Friday: 'Tis

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

'Tis by Frank McCourt

"That's your dream out now. That's what my mother would say when we were children in Ireland and a dream we had came true."

This book is all about Frank's dream come true - moving to New York and getting the heck out of Ireland. Also going to college and bettering himself and getting a decent job. And really, that's everyone's dream isn't it? Which I'm sure is one reason why Frank McCourt's books have resonated so with millions of readers.
