I read Little Women just a few short weeks ago, and it immediately earned a special place in my heart. The girls were as real to me as my own sister, and I honestly didn't expect to feel the same way about these boys! However, this is a charming continuation of the story of the second-eldest March girl, Jo. Plumfield is a marvelous school, and its inhabitants are adorable, mischevious, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny (take Demi's story of the Pilgrims in the last chapter). Just as with Little Women, I found myself tearing up multiple times. A beautifully written, marvellously done book, and I look forward to reading the end of the story in Jo's Boys.
Loved this book even more than Little Women! More importantly, my 10 year old boy loved this book. In this book you will learn what happens to Jo and her family after the story Little Women. Jo and her husband run a boarding school for boys. Some of the boys' families pay tuition, while others are orphans who are taken in and given a beautiful new chance at life. The book is full of boyish adventures and the reader is both entertained and inspired by Jo and her parenting style. I highly recommend this book!
