If only she can convince them to let her stay, shell try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes and blurting out the first thing that comes to her mind.

Ten things Anne of Green Gables taught me
Needing help on their farm, Green Gables, they apply to adopt a boy from an orphanage. By mistake, however, a red-haired, freckle-faced year-old girl named Anne Shirley is sent to the siblings. While Matthew instantly takes to Anne, Marilla is unsure about keeping her. However, the cheerful and highly imaginative Anne gradually transforms the joyless lives of shy Matthew and prim Marilla, and they come to view her as a daughter. However, not everything about Avonlea is idyllic , and the quick-tempered Anne has two nemeses: the hypercritical Mrs. Impulsive and sometimes mischievous, Anne has many misadventures, such as accidentally dyeing her hair green. However, she matures in the course of the book, and, when Matthew dies, Anne foregoes college to care for Marilla, who is going blind.
Written for all ages, it has been considered a classic children's novel since the mid-twentieth century. Set in the late 19th century, the novel recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley , an year-old orphan girl, who is mistakenly sent to two middle-aged siblings, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who had originally intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm in the fictional town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. The novel recounts how Anne makes her way through life with the Cuthberts, in school, and within the town. Since its publication, Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies and has been translated into at least 36 languages. Montgomery wrote numerous sequels, and since her death, another sequel has been published, as well as an authorized prequel.
