(CHILD-CLASSIC FICTION)

One of the original YA novels, this book is timeless. Through the eyes of the four main characters the reader experiences romance, growing up, loss, joy, marriage, success and more. This is such a sweet and powerful book about four girls finding their way in the midst of the Civil War and learning to stand on their own two feet. Especially as we enter the summer months, this is a great book to read in the sun as you watch the March sisters find themselves. The characters are all so different and so relatable: Jo, the tomboyish writer, Meg, the caring older sister, Beth, the altruistic loving piano player, and Amy the comic relief, egotistical painter. If you are looking for a book with strong female characters, vulnerable, realistic writing and satisfying romance this is the book for you!
