I have not finished this book yet,but it is just so good! I get to go see the play in November. Anyway,this is a nice classic book and if you have not read it,you should. I think it is a book for all ages. Basically, it is a story about a husband and wife who think they need a boy from the orphanage to help out on the farm. They go to pick up the boy and instead find a red haired girl with freckles.at first,they want to send her back,but they decide to keep her. Then it is the story of her life at Green Gables. Again,I definitely recommend this book to you,it is a must read so please read it. Happy reading!
