Little Women

by Louisa May Alcott

Quick take

Read this English class staple before you see the movie. Its follow-your-dreams feminist themes still hold true.

Synopsis

Grown-up Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth, and precocious Amy. The four March sisters couldn't be more different. But with their father away at war, and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on one another. Whether they're putting on a play, forming a secret society, or celebrating Christmas, there's one thing they can't help wondering: Will Father return home safely?
