In Anne of the Island Anne goes to college. What I found really interesting about this book is how similar Anne's experiences at college were to my own almost 100 years later. Anne lives with a group of roommates who are her good friends. She studies and dates. She, of course, has a live-in chaperon, which I did not. One thing that bugged me about this book is how many proposals Anne gets and rejects. Sure, Anne Shirley is great and all, but must every guy like her? I kind of wish that there had been just one guy that Anne really liked who didn't like her back, but, I guess in the words of Colin Singleton (from John Green's An Abundance of Katherines , Anne is a dumper and not a dumpee.

Erica Roberts It seemed like a lot of girls got tons of proposals back then, judging from LM's other books too. It was like a guy would meet a girl and if he liked her, almost immediately propose lol.
