Biography

I think this book is a good story for a biography

Vincent Van Gogh

I am a 12 year old boy and I really enjoyed this book. It tells about Vincent Van Gogh's life and all the hardships he had to go through and it really helps me because he never gave up on his dreams and that tells me that no matter hoe hard life can get I must keep trying and never give up.
