I got so emotional near the end of this book. When I originally read this book in middle school, it was one of my least favorite of the series, but now I’d say it is one of my favorites. And I honestly think that is because my situation in life continues to change. When I was younger, I loved the first few books the most, but now that I’m older, I’ve related to the later books even more and that’s beautiful. I loved reading Anne’s letters to Gilbert; I myself was in a long distance relationship until last year for three years, so I related to that part of Anne and Gilbert’s relationship. And then I also related to Anne’s journey of independence and growth in Summerside. I’ve always wondered if I’d have the same favorite in this series if I ever reread it, but I’m starting to think my favorite may definitely change. ( )

I knew going into this that much of the book is written in letter format so I tried to keep an open mind. Unfortunately, I hated the letter parts of the book and loved the rest.
The last 1/3 of the book was definitely the most interesting.

I haven't read the earlier books in the series but still enjoyed this book.

Anne has taken a job as the principal of a school. But when she gets to Summerside to start work, she finds that half the town (the Pringles clan) is against her because their candidate for the post of principal had lost out to her. The book describes how she eventually wins them over and other events that happen during her three years there. ( )
