75 in ’13: Anne of Avonlea

Gotta love that FLDS hairdo.

For the fifty-fifth book in the challenge, I read Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery, the second book in the Anne of Green Gables series. Anne is sixteen and growing up. She goes to teaching college and gets a job back at home, and though her free spirit and tendency to get into scrapes is somewhat dampened by experience and the weight of everyone else’s opinions, it isn’t gone in the least.

Again with the nostalgia for me. Only now I can see some other things going on that I didn’t notice before, and does anyone else think it’s weird to have a job teaching other kids when you’re not even eighteen? That seems like a lot to me.

I gave the book 4 out of 5 stars.
