The Lovereading4Kids comment

Now in paperback. This prequel is published to coincide with the centenary of the first publication of Anne of Green Gables. The book features Anne Shirley when she was younger living in a foster home, looking after children even though she is a child herself. It is a brutal environment and Anne’s only means of escape is through her imagination, and we learn how much of a powerful force that can be. A compelling and striking book from author Budge Wilson.

Synopsis

Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson

Before she had arrived at Green Gables, Anne Shirley had a difficult early life. Orphaned as a baby, she was sent from one foster-home to the next, caring for other people's children even though she was but a child herself, and escaping from her dark reality through the power of her vivid imagination.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
