Stacy (stacylienemann) Why does Anne Shirley stand out in YA lit?

Kathryn | 60 comments I think for her "scope of imagination" and her spunk and heart.

Tien (tiensblurb) | 18 comments THE WAY SHE TALKS!
oh my goodness - could you imagine any child speaking the way she does?! (btw, if you're wondering how old I am to say stuff like this, I'm 28)

Candace (Candybum) It is a happily-ever-after kind of story. She is an orphan, an out cast, a unique "strange" girl and yet she finds acceptance, love, friendship, family. That probably doesn't really make her stand out but she is extreemly out spoken, free spirited, and imaginative... I think I basically said what everyone else has already said.

I grew up reading this book. I loved it and she made me feel a bit better about my life.

I just started this book, I am about on chapter 5, so far I think the character would stand out because mainly of how she talks. It is a feel good kinda of talk, makes me wish that every time I looked at a tree I gave it a name. In fact, I think I am going to name all the tress in my yard today!

I have had this book since junior high, my mom bought the collection for me but I never took the time to read them. So I am so glad to finally be cracking this book open.

Christine | 147 comments Anne Shirley is such an amazing girl. She is very relatable, and she makes life so amazing.

She a strong, female character who doesn't let anyone get the best of her. She speaks her mind and I like that. One of my favorites characters. Loved the miniseries with Megan Follows too.

I agree. I love strong, female characters in books. So many of them are such wimps and only caught with boys/men, vampires or werewolves.

Most people I know think they're poor literature and are stupid and boring compared to today. NOT TRUE!!!!!
Anne is so sweet! Why do people have to be so discriminatory? Wait, I'm acting like she's a real person. Whoops.

Christine | 147 comments I don't really remember that much of rxacly what h

Christine | 147 comments I don't remember the exact details of the movie, but I feel like they were relatively similar to the books.

Jade Varden (jadevarden) I always liked her because she's not beautiful. It made her easy to root for.
