Pamela’s Picks: The Spring Girls by Anna Todd

 

Have you ever wondered what the four March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, from the book Little Women by Louisa May Alcott would be like if they were transported to another time and place. The Spring Girls by Anna Todd is one author’s answer to that. The four Spring sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy live on an army base in the United States in the twenty-first century. Like the first part of Little Women, this book chronicles a year in the life of the sisters, relating their changes in growing up, their relationships with each other and their parents, as well as friends and crushes. The characters are true to the original characters, Jo aspires to be an author, Meg wants popularity and to get married, Beth is a homebody and Amy is a self centered bratty little girl. I must admit that some swearing and few sexual situations felt a little out of character to me but they would be appropriate with the sisters lives in this modern time and place. Even so I enjoyed the book and so I’m recommended it here. If you read it do let me know what you think.
