"That's the worst of growing up, and I'm beginning to realize it. The things you wanted so much when you were a child don't seem half so wonderful to you when you get them." ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Now here is a female heroine worth all our love.  No one reads this and does not simply adore young Anne.  Well, maybe some boys scoff at first but you find me a boy who finishes the story with an open mind and I assure you he will like her.  Have no fear, it is a tale with boys in it too.  Temptation is strong for Anne and her trials, while outdated, still ring true to the modern reader.  Her self-awareness is amazing as she develops, and I believe the power to teach morality and virtue is so strong here; all the while in a very safe context.  Enjoy!
