I received this advanced reading copy when I had the pleasure of meeting the author at a recent conference. I don't remember loving "Little Women" the same way other girls did so I am curious to read it again as an adult, especially after reading Boyd Rioux's study of this American classic. She gave me a lot to ponder in regards to the lack of literature about girls and women taught in schools (and the uncomfortable reasons as to why that is); as well as how British readers often don't know about the second half of the book, having only read part one (as the book is separated into two books across the pond). I also want to understand why I didn't love this book as a child. Could I have subconsciously not wanted to be associated with a sentimental 'girl's' book? ...Unsettling thoughts.
