This is a classic book telling the story of four girls growing up without their father. The reader can enjoy seeing them changing, turning into adults. It is one of the most valuable books in American literature, because it is made for ordinary people, showing ordinary things, speaking abou the faith of four children who had been both rich and poor. This book turned out to be one of my favorites, because it is so close to the things happening to me and to other people I know, every day - meetin gfriends, doing unpleasant work, spending money. I highly recommend it to teenage girls, because they, like the four main characters, are changing.
