This book came from the book fair. It is a classic and I have always been interested in reading it. The copy I got has illustrations throughout it and I LOVE this!! It gave it such a classic and unique feel. The story follows four sisters; Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy growing up during the 1800s in America. There are strong themes of family, friendship, morals, love and loss. I kind of knew what happened thanks to Joey from Friends but I was still nicely (mostly) surprised at the delicacy and moments in this novel. Definitely a must read!
