Teaser Tuesday #1: An Old School Classic!






Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ShouldBe Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!



Title: Anne of Green Gables

Author: L.M. Montgomery

Year Published: 1983

Publisher: Grosset & Dunlap

Genre: Classic, Childhood, Fantasy

Reading Level: Middle Grade


Synopsis:


Everyone's favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over.





"Oh, Mrs. Lynde, please, please, forgive e.  If you refuse, it will be a lifelong sorrow to me.  You wouldn't' like to inflict a lifelong sorrow on a poor little orphan girl, would you, even if she had a dreadful temper?  Oh, I am sure you wouldn't.  Please say you forgive me, Mrs. Lynde."

 "When twilight drops her curtain down,
And pins it with a star,
Remember that you have a friend
Though she may wander far."
 I'm really enjoying this book so far!  Anne is such an endearing character and I can't wait to read more adventures about her!
