Welcome to a new (and first of the year) Waiting on Wednesday!
This week a graphic novel that I can’t wait to try out. I haven’t read the original Little Women, I know I know, I am sure people find that terrible! But I am kind of eh about classics thanks to high school ruining them for me. Forcing books unto people is just not the way to go. But I am more than willing to try out a retelling of it, in a modern setting, and even better it is a graphic novel!
I can’t wait to meet Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. I am curious to see how their relationship is, not only together, but also with their parents as they are both so busy.
Oh, and fun thing, it is coming out on my birthday! Eep!
2018 marks the 150th anniversary of the classic Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Join Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy as they are reenvisioned as a blended family living in modern day NYC in this beautiful graphic novel.
With their father away in the military and their mother working two jobs to support the family, the March sisters have to rely on one another to make it from day to day. Whether they’re arguing over the bathroom, struggling with homework, fighting off bullies, understanding their crushes, or battling cancer, there’s one thing the four sisters keep questioning–will everything turn out okay?
Join modern young women, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy in a new narrative that follows four sisters and their struggles in growing up, dealing with racism, discovering themselves, and following their dreams.
