Prepare to see the world through new eyes: This inspirational collection offers up a healthy dose of optimism with five classic coming-of-age stories. Featuring the youthful adventures of some of fiction’s most beloved heroines, this collection—which includes Pollyanna, The Secret Garden, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm—proves that, while growing up can be hard, the right attitude makes anything and everything possible. Though the young ladies in these stories hail from all over the world and all walks of life, they share a common truth: In an ever changing world, the journey from childhood to adulthood can be full of challenges, especially for girls. But as Pollyanna finds happiness in every situation, Mary Lennox coaxes her garden to thrive, the March sisters navigate the pitfalls of love and loss, Anne Shirley conquers the hearts of Avonlea, and Rebecca Randall inspires her family with joy, each iconic character changes her life—and the lives of everyone around them—for the better with hopeful, persistent optimism. The inspiration for numerous treasured film and TV adaptations, including Netflix’s Anne with an E, these timeless tales have captured the imaginations and hearts of generations of readers.
