Little Women is a classic story of four sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. They have a strong, unbreakable bond of friendship that is everlasting. This book is about the struggles that the sisters go through together, side by side. Their father is at war and the girls do not have much of a male figure besides the boy next door, Laurie. The sisters perform selfless deeds, including giving their large, plentiful breakfast to a poor family. Each sister has their own talents that help them cope with the hardships around them. When the youngest, shyest sister, Beth, becomes ill, the girls string together despite any small differences they previously had to climb the largest mountain yet.
