Seton's Description:
A novel about being true to yourself. Life changes for Polly Milton when she leaves her country home to visit her cousins in the city. Polly's naivete and her country ways embarrass her sophisticated cousins. She's not like them, and she doesn't know if she wants to be. But will Polly be able to enjoy city life without changing? Best known for her book, Little Women, Louisa May Alcott first published this novel in 1870 and it has all qualities of her more famous works. What is an old-fashioned girl? The author summed up the philosophy that runs through all her books as follows: "Let those who launch children into the world see to it that they have good health to man the oars, good education for ballast, and good principles as pilots to guide them." An old-fashioned girl embodies these good principles, as demonestrated with humor and pathos in this book. Complete and unabridged. Soft Cover. 345 pp.

A must read for all girls!, July 15, 2010
Reviewer: ~Little Bookworm~

This book is a must read for all girls!

Fourteen year old "country mouse," Polly Milton visits her wealthy friend, Fanny Shaw in the city. She is shocked by the fashions and manners of the young people around her. Polly is laughed at and ridiculed because of her clothes and old-fashioned manners.

The story deals with how to handle peer pressure and to always be ones-self. It was a wonderful book when it was first published in 1869, but I think it is more relevant now than ever before.
