- loved Anne as a character. She’s funny, she’s outspoken and she’s just different which is really refreshing considering the time period (early 20th century)
- Quick and easy to read. Montgomery knew how to write and keep each of her characters interesting
- Perfect balance of light-heartedness, the pains of growing up, and tragedy
- none! I loved every bit of Anne’s first story
Cierra Approved? Yes!
Final Rating: 5/5
