Anne of Green Gables
By L.M. Montgomery; 1908
Summary: When Marilla Cuthbert's brother, Matthew, returns home to Green Gables with a chatty redheaded orphan girl, Marilla exclaims, "But we asked for a boy. We have no use for a girl." It's not long, though, before the Cuthberts can't imagine how they could ever do without young Anne of Green Gables--but not for the original reasons they sought an orphan. Somewhere between the time Anne "confesses" to losing Marilla's amethyst pin (which she never took) in hopes of being allowed to go to a picnic, and when Anne accidentally dyes her hated carrot-red hair green, Marilla says to Matthew, "One thing's for certain, no house that Anne's in will ever be dull." And no book that she's in will be, either.--Emilie Coulter
My Review: Anne spelled with an E is one hysterical character. O man! She cracks me up with her imagination and personality. She made me laugh through the whole book. She truly is a kindred spirit. As Anne would say, "Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world." This book is a classic and worth reading just because of Anne. She is so innocent, adventurous, and smart. I recommend this book just because of Anne.
Watch Out for: Drinking, teasing, and death
