This is a well-written coming of age book about a young girl set in the 1940's-1950's would be my guess. An excellent read.

Annie John although a book I had to read for highschool- meaning usually something academic and boring- was a great read.. short but packed with meaning and insights on life in the era in the book. I highly recommend this as a book to read both casually or academicly as it compliments such texts as Malcolm X, The Color Purple etc but in a new refreshing way.

A charming coming of age of a young girl in Antigua. Annie is charming and witty, yet also very audacious and stubborn.
