Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery is a beautifully told coming of age story. Anne Shirley is an orphan mistakenly brought home by the Cuthberts living in Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. This story narrates Anne’s life as she grows up and learns to navigate her feelings, relationships, and life. Anne is a nearly perfect character because of her imperfections; she’s always making mistakes or getting into trouble, which makes her relatable to the reader.
For generations, Anne has delighted readers with her big personality and even bigger imagination, and as this was my second read of Montgomery’s novel, I can say this book truly lives up to its reputation and does not disappoint.
