This is a VERY good book. When I first read it I was amazed that Alcott wrote it when she was only 17! This is a very heartwarming story.

When I first saw the book, I was sure I wouldn't like it. But, the saying is true. Never judge a book by it's cover. I was EXTREMELY impressed with this book, especialy since it was Alcott's first novel, which she wrote at 17. This is an amazingly good book and is well worth the price!
