I am always looking out for time travel stories, in as much as I post about one every Tuesday (or sometimes Wednesday, as will be the case this week). Here's one that's coming out in just a few days, that I'm really looking forward to:
Little Women and Me by Lauren Baratz-Logsted (Bloomsbury, November 8, 320 pages)
"Emily is sick and tired of being a middle sister. So when she gets an assignment to describe what she'd change about a classic novel, Emily pounces on Little Women. After all, if she can't change things in her own family, maybe she can bring a little justice to the March sisters. (Kill off Beth? Have cute Laurie wind up with Amy instead of Jo? What was Louisa May Alcott thinking?!) But when Emily gets mysteriously transported into the 1860s world of the book, she discovers that righting fictional wrongs won't be easy. And after being immersed in a time and place so different from her own, it may be Emily-not the four March sisters-who undergoes the most surprising change of all. Lauren Baratz-Logsted's winning confection will appeal to fans of Little Women as well as anyone who enjoys a modern twist on an old favorite."
This seems to be one written with fans of Little Women in mind, and since I can practically recite it from memory (favorite line, just because I like Amy best--"I'm glad mine's blue"), I fit the bill beautifully. I enjoyed seeing the March sisters from the perspective of twentieth century kids in The Time Garden, by Edward Eager...and I'm looking forward to meeting them again!
