Amanda reminded me of Rilla of Ingleside and Rainbow Valley, and thereupon of course I developed an intense craving to reread all of L.M. Montgomery. The Story Girl. The Blue Castle. Jane of Lantern Hill. Emily of New Moon. Pat of Silver Bush. How I loved those books and their painterly covers!
Did you read the adventures of Anne Shirley, Emily Starr, and all their compatriots when you were a tween/teen?
