Book Review of: An Old-Fashioned Girl. by: Louisa May Alcott

Polly's friendship with the wealthy Shaw's of Boston helps them to build a new life and teaches her the truth about the relationship between happiness and riches.Polly never questioned the way she was until she went to visit her city cousins. Fanny looks too glamorous to be Polly's age and wouldn't be caught dead sledding down a hill. Only Tom, Fanny's brother, supports Polly as she tries to see where she fits in.

My Review:I just got through reading this book and loved it!! every girl should read it!! I love the way Polly is pro-trade: a sweet, sensible girl willing to help anyone she meets! yet she is just like anyone else and gets tempers, gets heartaches and all that stuff that is in any romance book:) I didn't like Tom or Fanny at first but they both grew on me and by the 3rd chapter I couldn't put it down!! by the end of the book you will feel as if you know the people (I personally like this type) I think that Louisa May Alcott could have made the story longer 'cause at one time skips 6 years:( anyhow a all together good book.

I don't remember anything bad or bad words used! I recommend for 12 and up!!
