Which Childhood Novels Made You Cry?

We all have one.

You never forget the first book that made you cry.

Whether it was a novel that made you feel understood for the very first time, or simply a love story that made you long for your own heartbreak, this childhood book will always hold a special place in your heart.

We want to know: What was the first book that made YOU cry?

Was it the 6th grade classic Where the Red Fern Grows?

Or the painfully honest The Perks of Being a Wallflower?

Maybe the first book that made you choke up was the real life tragedy depicted in Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.

There's also a very good chance it was the rustic classic Charlotte's Web.

Tell us which childhood book first made you cry AND why (or what part of the book) in the comments below for a chance to be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post!
