How I love Anne! Some of her phrases are gradually becoming incorporated into my own everyday language. Montgomery's delightful character is endearing and genuine, seemingly flighty while also being loyal and sensible. Teenaged Anne has returned to Avonlea prepared with lofty ideals to impart to her new students. As time passes though, she learns that the thing that matter most are sometimes not quite so romantic and lofty as she might imagine. Despite her happiness, Anne must make a difficult choice - one that will change her life - at the end of the story. Through daily struggles and joys, Anne finds herself becoming a young woman of sense, compassion, and – always – of a delicious imagination that brings joy to those around her.
