Series: Emily of New Moon

Published April 1st 1983 by Dell Laurel-Leaf

Emily Starr never knew what it was to be lonely——until her beloved father died. Now Emily's an orphan, and her mother's snobbish relatives are taking her to live with them at New Moon Farm. She's sure she won't be happy. Emily deals with stiff, stern Aunt Elizabeth and her malicious classmates by holding her head high and using her quick wit. Things begin to change when she makes friends, with Teddy, who does marvelous drawings; with Perry, who's sailed all over the world with his father yet has never been to school; and above all, with Ilse, a tomboy with a blazing temper. Amazingly, Emily finds New Moon beautiful and fascinating. With new friends and adventures, Emily might someday think of herself as Emily of New Moon.

Okay, So I read this book when I was a little girl. It was my favorite book that made me love reading.

I got totally lost in Emily's world and new life. It is a wonderful story that I still enjoy reading today.

I can not wait until my little girl is old enough to share this wonderful story with. She is such an easy girl to relate to. Montgomery did a wonderful job with this book.
