Review of: Anne of Avonlea by LM Montgomery

At sixteen Anne is grown up. . . almost. Her gray eyes shine like evening stars, but her red hair is still as peppery as her temper. In the years since she arrived at Green Gables as a freckle-faced orphan, she has earned the love of the people of Avonlea and a reputation for getting into scrapes. But when Anne begins her job as the new schoolteacher, the real test of her character begins. Along with teaching the three Rs, she is learning how complicated life can be when she meddles in someone else's romance, finds two new orphans at Green Gables, and wonders about the strange behavior of the very handsome Gilbert Blythe. As Anne enters womanhood, her adventures touch the heart and the funny bone.

I am just now sitting down to write this post in the middle of March; I finished Anne of Avonlea in early February. I can't remember the book too clearly with so much time (and so many books) in between. 

I will be reading Anne of the Island at some point this year and I will try to do a better job of getting all of my reviews out in a timely manner from now on (once I catch up from being 9 behind). =)
