G, 4 stars
The couple living at Green Gables in Avonlea are expecting a child to come by train. They are to adopt a boy chosen for them by a friend. Unfortunately, the child that arrives is a girl. The child is red-headed Anne.
Anne of Green Gables is the story of Anne's growing up years with the Cuthberts. They wanted a boy, but they take in Anne and learn to love her and her imaginative, adventurous ways. The end is a little sad, but overall it's a great book and I want to read the rest of the series. I've only read a few of them before and don't really recall much from them anyways.
This book and the series is good for girls. If you haven't read them I do recommend reading them. Every girl needs to get to know Anne Shirley.
