Quick review: A Modern Cinderella by Louisa May Alcott

A Modern CinderellaA Modern Cinderella by Louisa May Alcott

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It was a good book, don’t get me wrong and Alcott still managed to capture my heart with her literary wit. Is it as memorable as Little Women , or Jo’s Boys ? No. The stories in the book reminded me of the characters in the aforementioned texts but that was it. Perhaps it was because there were a number of stories compiled in one book, but those didn’t move me nor care about the characters as much as when the kids and the teachers were together. All I realized was to be a Modern Cinderella, one has to be as loyal and hardworking as Nan, as bright and witty as Debbie, and as caring and pure as Nelly.

I also have to admit that Dora’s story was cute.
