I have read this book a million times. Just ask my parents :). This is the first book that actually made me cry. Y' know, at the part where she's reading the weeping willow poem. It is one of the best books in the whole world. I think I'll go read it again!!

The 1991 film of My Girl is such an amazing movie, I laugh, I cry. The book is the same. I can't put this book down! It's very well written. So happy to see that this lovely movie is also a book! I recommend this to pretty much everybody. Even if you have never seen the movie before, you read this, you will want too!
Enjoy-

I've always been a fan of the film My Girl, and as soon as I discovered there was a book tie-in, I had to have it. It's almost identical to the movie, but I did find a couple tidbits of information that wasn't included in the film. I'm glad I picked this up.

This book is awesome. I loved the movie and this book is almost as good. It makes the death of Thomas J not so sad.
I like this book. Every time you read this book, you feel as if YOU were Vada Sultenfuss
