"Bring it on, life. March girls can take anything you throw at us."Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy: A Graphic Novel is a retelling of the classic Little Women. The familiar plot line is captured with a fun present-day twist as it incorporates parental overseas deployment, a multiracial blended family, chemotherapy, coming out as gay, cell phones, email, snapchat photos, and more. Creative liberties were taken when connecting the dots as to how the March sisters came to be a family which I thought was a nice touch, and there was a bit of real-life history included as the 1970's alliance between the LGBTQ community and the Black Panther Party was discussed. In my opinion, this retelling is both similar enough and different enough to keep a variety of readers' interest.
