Genre: Classics
Rating: 5/5
# pages: 243

New adventures lie ahead as Anne Shirley packs her bags, waves good-bye to childhood, and heads for Redmond College. With old friend Prissy Grant waiting in the bustling city of Kingsport and frivolous new pal Philippa Gordon at her side, Anne tucks her memories of rural Avonlea away and discovers life on her own terms, filled with surprises...including a marriage proposal from the worst fellow imaginable, the sale of her very first story, and a tragedy that teaches her a painful lesson. But tears turn to laughter when Anne and her friends move into an old cottage and an ornery black cat steals her heart. Little does Anne know that handsome Gilbert Blythe wants to win her heart, too. Suddenly Anne must decide if she's ready for love...

This is probably my favourite Anne book, although it's difficult to say as they're all good :) I love reading about her life at Patty's Place, and Redmond. Also, I think the Roy-issue is very well written and a very atypical inclusion in this type of book - although I am glad she ended up with Gilbert after all!
