really liked it
bookshelves: ya, classic

I adored this book as a child, so when a friend recently read it, I decided it was time to revisit it. Rose's docility and vanities are less charming to me now and the ideas of class and gender more cloying. But it was fascinating to see Alcott railing against the trends in both in very modern ways and it's still a lovely story.
