Left as an orphan after her father's death, Rose Campbell is sent to live at the "Aunt Hill" with her six aunts and seven rowdy boy cousins. For someone who is used to a girls' boarding school, it all seems pretty overwhelming. Her guardian, Uncle Alec, makes her eat healthy things like oatmeal, and even tries to get her to give up her pretty dresses for drab, sensible clothes. Will Rose ever get used to her uncle's crazy notions and all her noisy relatives?

I love the fact that this was written so long ago, and the values ans lessions Rose and the readers learn make this a favorite across the nation and around the world for century's! Lousia May Alcott is an awesome writer. She captures a child's perspective in the light of life from way back in 1875. It's the perfect read for children and adults.
