Product Overview

One of the high points in eleven-year-old Rosy''s life is her daily trip to the lebrary. There she can escape the dust and grime of her home in the north end of the city and read about her favorite character, Anne of Green Gables. When Rosy learns she could win a complete set of L.M. Montgomery''s books in an Anne look-alike contest, she''s thrilled. But could a half Native brunette possibly winn? How will she come up with a costume and how will she get there when her family has no car? Her dad is long gone and her mother barely manages to feed her and her three brothers. Will her new friend Lydia, who looks depressingly like and and whose father is rich, be Rosy''s hope or her downfall in the contest?
