This childhood classic came to life in my hands for
the first time when I read it last year. As I delved deeper into each chapter
of Anne Shirley’s formative years, her character became a part of me, and until
I finished the very last sentence of the book, her story was also my story.
Excitable and imaginative, Anne was the perfect heroine of Avonlea, and she had
this undeniable ability to captivate both her readers and her fictional friends.
She was far from perfect, and she made a lot of mistakes, but she was relatable.
In her, I found a louder, bubblier, red-headed version of myself, and she
inspired me to hold onto my childhood, because it will not last forever. When
L.M. Montgomery created Anne Shirley, she gave life to a character that I
connected with on a deep level—one that made me laugh, one that made me think,
and one that made me better. In my opinion,discovering characters like that is
the best part of reading fiction.
