Emily March is the middle March in her family, flanked by older sister Charlotte and younger sister Anne.  Sick of being stuck in this formula, Emily retreats to her dreams of those other March sisters.  You know, the Little Women from the perennial classic novel by Louisa May Alcott.  So when Emily needs to choose a novel for an assignment, she naturally gravitates towards Little Women.

Thinking about what she would change about her favorite book leads Emily on a trip back to 1860’s Concord, MA.  She’s still the middle March, just not the way she’s used to.  Stuck in the past, in a fictional novel, Emily finds it may be more difficult than imagined to change history.  Or is it?

Little Women and Me is a must for lovers of Little Women.  We’ve all dreamed about saving Beth from death or wished Jo and Laurie lived happily ever after.  Be careful what you wish for!
