If you want to use any of this material contact me and there is a very good chance I will say YES.
However, if you just cut and paste into your own blog or whatever and pass it off as your own then there's a very good chance I will find out. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the internet is so vast and expanding so fast (note the fancy internal rhyme)] that no one will know.

Wonderful photo. Wonderful quote with a wonderful message. It moved me TY.
That’s how I felt when I read it…(wonderful novel too. Have you read it?)
Oh goodness yes, I have read it–more than once (once in high school and once in undergrad school when I took Adolescent Literature). It is probably my favorite coming-of-age stories, and I have read many.

Glad to have a link to your blog
Francie also decided that she would be a writer when she grew up.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn has been one of my favorite novels for more than 40 years. No doubt it influenced my own writing.
Thanks for posting this excerpt.
You’re right! And didn’t she first write compositions about living the life she dreamed of: a life without want or worry and it was no good. She on;y started to write ‘properly’ when she drew on her own experiences…I love so much about that book: the alcoholic father who was a singer-waiter, the pillow they were given as a wedding present…READ IT if you haven’t already.
