The first book I finished was Little Women Next Door.
Back-Cover Synopsis: Susan does not like to talk because she stammers. And she's scared of a lot of things, such as climbing trees and jumping fences and, especially, meeting new people. Now she has new neighbors unlike any she's ever seen. They live on a farm they call Fruitlands, where they wear strange clothes and use words Susan has never heard before. Susan quickly discovers she likes these new neighbors, especially one lively girl who loves to swing on tree branches, act in plays, and write stories of magic and mystery. Her name is Louisa May Alcott.
I enjoyed learning a little more about the unique and unorthodox lifestyle of the Alcott family.
Originally, I was a little wary of the author's worldview, especially since I strongly disagree with many of the Alcotts' beliefs. Despite my concerns, she gently demonstrated the flaws in their way of thinking, while praising the admirable aspects of their lives.
The target audience was probably middle grade reading level, as the writing was concise, and the story short. I'd recommended it to the MG and older audience, and anyone who'd like to spend a few hours contemplating the Alcotts' unique way of life.
