An Old-Fashioned Girl

Our rating: ****

When Polly Milton comes to stay with her cousin, Fanny Shaw and her wealthy family in the city, they find her old-fashioned ways to be unusual and strange. Polly wonders if she’ll ever be able to fit it, but then wonders which is better. Soon, the Shaws to realize that, even though Polly isn’t up to date on the social aspect of things, her genuine happiness and concern for others set her apart in a special way.

Another good Louisa May Alcott. Oh, and even though I categorized it as a long read, it isn’t a very long read. And it’s almost as if you could separate the book into two, because about halfway through, it skips ahead to six years later. This is definitely a book worth reading.

  1. I thought this was a good story for a young reader, (by that I mean younger than myself.)
    I would say that you should NOT read the book that follows this one, I don’t remember the title, sorry.
