Is your favorite classic Little Women? If so, I have the perfect book for you! An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott ranks right up there with her other novel, Little Women. The plot revolves around Polly Milton, a “country” girl with old-fashioned values, who goes to stay with her friend, Fanny Shaw, as well as her family. The time period is similar to Little Women. The Shaws are quite wealthy and modern for that day and age, while Polly is poor. What’s interesting about this novel is that it actually covers two distinct time periods and storylines. In the first section of the book, Polly and Fanny are teenagers. The second section occurs six years afterwards and showcases how the way people are raised affects the course of their lives. A classic tale of city mouse meets the country mouse, this novel centers around the importance of being true to yourself and your beliefs. Its message includes standing by your morals and beliefs in the face of peer pressure. This book would be great for many different ages, but especially that young girl who loves to read the classics.
