I love books about smart girls. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith, Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery, and A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L’Engle, are three books that definitely fit into this category. And that is why I like, in some cases love, all three three of them. Although based on the different points in my life that I read them, I feel pretty sure of what my decisions are going to be. Now I want to know yours. Let me know in the comments which book you would read (your favorite), which you would rewrite (second favorite or one you would make changes too), and which you would burn (least favorite and obviously only in the figurative sense!). Here are my picks:
- Read: A Wrinkle in Time (such a favorite and reread more times than I can count.)
- Rewrite: Anne of Green Gables (practically perfect, but maybe a little more Gilbert!)
- Burn: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (I didn’t read this until a few years ago so it just doesn’t mean as much to me as these two other childhood favorites).
Excited to see your thoughts on these thee books!
