"School is pretty good. The Teacher can answer more questions than the one in Temperance but not so many as I can ask."

When ten-year-old Rebecca Randall comes to live with her maiden aunts Miranda and Jane in a small town in Maine, they expect to turn her into a proper young lady. Instead the irrepressible, outspoken Rebecca will end up changing her aunts. A huge success when it was first published in 1903-and admired by such contemporaries as Jack London and Mark Twain-Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm marked a dramatic change in America's notion of a child heroine, introducing a girl who was mischievous, full of fun, and more than a match for even the most censorious grownup. This irresistible novel captures a pivotal moment in the history and culture of America and in the lives of American women facing a future holding more possibilities for them than ever before.
