Author(s): Louisa May Allcott
Jo, the second eldest of the March daughters and an aspiring writer, receives yet another rejection from a publisher. Her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her she can do better by making her stories more personal.
Begrudgingly, Jo weaves the story of how she and her sisters—Meg, the eldest, who's on the brink of love, sweet-natured Beth who always puts others first and Amy, the youngest and most precocious—grew up in America.
Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures—including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles and tragic losses, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.
Louisa May Alcott’s timeless and captivating book is brought to life in a brand new adaptation.
