Another one of my daughter's library books that I picked up and read in under an hour.

This is a very nice story, with a very engaging main character, Amy March. It is very well written, and exposes the plot and wraps it up very nicely, considering the short length of the book. It does end on a positive note, but doesn't have a fairy tale ending. Instead, the ending is very realistic. There is a positive message to it, but things are not perfect, as the story ends with the girls' father going off

Of the 4 books in this little series, Amy's Story is the most in line with Alcott's original character.

A story is given for each of the March sisters at age 10. These are great and go well with Little Women...perfect for LW fans who want more. I wish I had known about these when I was little!

Now that I've finally finished all 4, my absolute favorite was Meg's Story and my least favorite (but still liked!) was Jo's Story. I felt hers was the least believable when compared to Alcott's personal writing style.

So you know when you read books when your little and then when your older you some how come in contact with them again? this book is one of those special case's. It's basically "little women" but for elementary kids. I strongly believe this book brought me to read the "little women" series.

I loved these when I was in 4th/5th grade - a story is given for each of the March sisters at age 10. Jo was my favorite, of course :)
