R2R: Anne of Green Gables
Summary: Anne of Green Gables is a story about a girl who likes to talk a lot. Matthew is the guy who goes to pick her up at an orphanage and adopt her. He expected an orphan boy but got an orphan girl named Anne instead. Matthew and his sister Marilla decided to keep Anne. Anne got mad at Rachel Lynde who is Marilla's friend. They give tips to each other on how to parent. Rachel called Anne ugly and skinny and Anne got mad so she asked Rachel if she would like to be called clumsy and fat. Marilla made Anne go to her room until she would apologize to Mrs. Rachel Lynde.
Marilla set Anne up with a play date with her friend’s daughter named Diana. Anne and Diana became really close friends. One time when Diana came over to Anne's house Anne accidentally gave Diana wine instead of raspberry juice so both of them got drunk. One night Diana ran over to Anne's house because Minnie May (Diana's sister) had croup while Diana's parents weren't home. Anne ran over to Diana's house to see how badly she was sick. Matthew went to go find a doctor. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens next.
Reflection: I have a best friend like Anne does. I have red hair and a lot of freckles. Also I like to talk a lot. I was never adopted though and I don't make a ton of mistakes all the time. I do like to wear dresses like Anne does. I also like nature.
One of my friends was adopted like Anne. She wasn't a baby when she was adopted like Anne. She had to meet new friends and didn't fit in. She was very smart like Anne. Last week she lost her grandfather. She was very sad. I became great friends with her just like Anne and Diana.
