Amy looked relieved, but naughty Jo took her at her word, for during the first call she sat with every limb gracefully composed, every fold correctly draped, calm as a summer sea, cool as a snowbank, and as silent as the sphinx. In vain Mrs. Chester alluded to her charming novel', and the Misses Chester introduced parties, picnics, the opera, and the fashions. Each and all were answered by a smile, a bow, and a demure "Yes" or "No" with the chill on.

i read little women some time ago and i think this is just as good a book, if not better! i love them both. i am a fairly good reader and i don't often say this about books,but i think that was two of some of the best books i've ever read. I knew it was a good book mostly because i was part of the story the whole time. I saw megs wedding,and wrote story for jo, and went to visit crabby aunt march, all in an hour, and enjoyed it. i recommend to all who can understand the concept and greatness of these books.
