After reading this wonderful book I kept wondering, “Why don’t we all live and love like the March family?” It’s the story of the four March sisters: pretty Meg, tomboy Jo, dear Beth and little lady Amy and not forgetting ‘our boy’ Laurie. My favourite March is Jo she’s so funny, energetic, and caring and maybe because I know how being a tomboy feels and are constantly being told that it isn’t proper for young ladies be running, jumping and talking slang. I love how she plays mother over Beth.
Each of the girls had little problems of their own that needed fixing for instance, Jo tended to be more like a young man not caring for a that fussing young ladies always seem up to, Meg was tired of her ministrations as a governess and wanted so badly to be rich someday to bask in the comforts like the more fortunate girls. Amy was so sick and tired of her own flat nose but distracts herself with her art, while sweet Beth was content with life and wanted to help mother with the chores and prays for father’s return from the war. While reading through we see their slips and their falls as well as witnessing them growing up. We see how they cope with their own personal changes and the ones that affects them all.
