Recommended for: Melissa

I want others to read this book so I can talk with them about it. Who would think that my favorite book from my childhood would be responsible for this and so many other books. I could not spend enough time with this book and it presents so many topics to discuss - did boys/men read "Little Women" and why or why not.
There was a great quote that basically asked if boys read about aliens, why wouldn't they read books about females? (I think there are so many ways to take that question.)
It is disappointing to this old lady to discover that not as many are reading this book nowadays.
I also learned there are a lot of "Jos" in the world. I'm not alone.
And because of reading this, I have added to my TBR starting with "Little Men" which I haven't read in 50 years.

“And if boys enjoy books about aliens, which they certainly do, why not also books about girls?”
