I never read Anne of Green Gables. I know it is much beloved, but somehow it never crossed my path in book or movie form, or didn’t catch my interest on the shelf. Jane of Lantern Hill however, I had as an audio book as a child. I listened to those cassette tapes over and over. Recently I decided to look this book up to reread and see if it withstood the test of time in my mind. I was surprised to find that one of my favorites was written by L.M. Montgomery. What can I say? Anne of Green Gables just landed in my to-read pile. If you are already a fan, I am preaching to the choir. If you are looking for a very well written YA protagonist with moxie, may I suggest you meet Jane? I think she is awesome.
