A classic coming-of-age tale of a spirited heroine named Anne

Anne Shirley is an eleven-year-old orphan who is mistakenly sent to a pair of siblings who had wanted to adopt a boy to help with the work on their farm in Prince Edward Island. Anne's quirky personality and good-natured spirit cause the siblings to grow to love her anyway and soon the entire town falls for the precocious little girl with bright red hair. Beloved by both children and adults, Anne of Green Gables is a celebration of fierce individualism and the families we create, rather than the ones we are born into.

Review quote

"Anne is the kind of gal we can all relate to; she screws up a lot, she has a healthy handful of frenemies, she talks back a lot and sometimes wishes she had a different life, a different name, and definitely different hair. But that's what makes [Anne of Green Gables] so perfect for when your real-world anxiety is off the charts. No matter what happens, Anne always finds the beauty in the world."
--Kerri Jarema, Bustle "Rather than dispense the message that it's only what's on the inside that counts, 'Anne of Green Gables' conveys something more nuanced, that beauty can be a pleasure, that costumes can provide succor, that the right dress can improve your life -- all things that adults know to be true, sometimes, but that we try to simplify for our children."
--Willa Paskin, The New York Times Magazine
