Ok I just have to ask if anyone else has noticed how similar The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall is to Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. SPOILERS AHEAD! My Dad has said this a lot, and there sate some pretty obvious similarities; four sisters meet a lonely boy, Rosalind is pretty similar to Meg, Sky is Jo, etc. But I recently realized that the similarities go much farther!

Jeffrey/Laurie wants to date Sky/Jo, but they wouldn’t be good for each other. Jeffrey/Laurie then ends up with Batty/Amy, and Sky/Jo marries a foreign student/profesor!!! I don’t know if this was obvious for other people, but I was amazed and needed to tell everyone I possibly could. :)

I just went to the Broadway musical of Little Women yesterday, it was really good even though I've never read Little Women!

Ooh, that sounds awesome! I actually didn’t know that was a thing!
