March Books 21) Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery

A wholesome tale of an enthusiastic orphan girl accidentally adopted by a brother and sister in rural Prince Edward Island, bringing a mild amount of subversive chaos to their orderly lives and to the life of their small town. It's not terribly challenging or profound, and the claim made on the cover that Anne is "the most beloved, beguiling and timeless heroine in all of fiction" seems just a tad exaggerated. I don't think I shall bother with the sequels.
