Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott
Originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869, Louisa May Alcott’s novel about four sisters coming of age in the Civil War era since has become a classic.
Over 150 years later it is capturing another generation of readers, thanks in part to recent adaptation from director Greta Gerwig.
The novel offers a rather unusual perspective - not all of it is about falling in love. The author tells a story about the ability to dream, and the importance of supporting each other.
It seems like this book is a perfect read growing up.
