Little Women is the first book I can remember loving. I read every version I could get my hands on. I remember always identifying with Jo because I was like her. Not really tom-boyish, but just marching to the beat of my own drum. And I loved writing early on. My aunt gave me a diary for my 10th birthday and I wrote in it faithfully. I also liked play-acting, like the March sisters did in their attic...acting out stories that Jo had written. I also loved Beth. I think because I adored my younger (and only) sister and Beth and Jo's relationship reminded me of us. In the late 70s, early 80s, there was a TV version of Little Women which starred Susan Dey (The Partridge Family) as Jo. I remember being so excited for it. I still love Little Women to this day. I have reread the book a couple of times in adulthood and I watch the Winona Ryder version of the movie at least once a year!
