Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there's tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there's Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures - including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.

It is an essential American novel, perhaps the essential American novel for girls . . . Girls come to it on their own." -Jane Smiley, from the Introduction Praise for the Penguin Threads series: "In a time of downloads, E-Ink and Kindles, it is nice to see that Penguin still strives to produce beautifully designed physical books. . . . Miss Tamaki is one talented artist and her collaboration with Penguin is a match made in book heaven." --PhillyBurbs.com "When it comes to covers, Penguin is hard to beat. But somehow, the publisher just keeps upping the ante." --Booklicious (bookliciousblog.com) "Breathtaking . . . Major kudos to publisher Penguin Books for such a beautifully art-directed and realized series of covers. . . . Modern, sweet, beautiful. Inspired." --Sublimestitching.comFrom the Publisher:
