I am a bookworm..

This book is by Louisa May Alcott,the author of Little Women and other classics. It was written by her for five girls that ran their own magazine. Set in the 1800's, it is about an orphan, Patty, who thinks no one wants her. A family comes for her, but they just needed a servant. They are nice, but they ignore her, and she longs for a real friend/family. I guess you'd call it a Christmas story, but I think it is good for anytime. It is kind of short, and it makes a good read-aloud. If you can't tell, the book is called The Quiet Little Woman.
It is sad, but has a happy ending. If you read it, please comment! I'd love to know what you think of it.
