Montgomery's delightful novel about a group of young cousins and their friends enjoying a long summer on Prince Edward Island, Canada.
At the center of the story is Sara Stanley, the Story Girl of the title, whose gift sparks the imagination and the adventures of her group. The children will work on the family farm, explore their town, and experience the small triumphs and disappointment common to the edge of adolescence in a earlier age.
The narrative is largely driven by Sara Stanley's enchanting tales of adventure, romance, terror and suspense. The children are distinct and believable individuals; the author is said to have modeled the Story Girl after herself at that age.

It picks the characters without preamble and sends them off on new adventures. The children are older now, adolescents who are beginning to relate to the adult world. Together they will write and publish their own magazine, wrestle with New Year's resolutions, host an aunt who isn't an aunt, survive a snow storm, visit a witch, and attend their first wedding and first funeral. The Story Girl will finally solve the lingering mystery of the Awkward Man. The escapades of the characters still involve lots of innocent fun, but the adult world will intrude in ways not seen in the first novel.
They will interact with each other as awkward adolescents, and the Story Girl herself will be on the verge of her first romance when a dramatic event changes everything. Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery, famous for her "Anne of Green Gables" novels, had other novels that are well worth reading. One of them is "The Story Girl", which follows the adventures of a group of young cousins and their friends during a long summer on turn-of-the-century Prince Edward Island, Canada, Montgomery's birthplace and the setting of many of her stories.
Montgomery modeled the leading character on herself at that age. As the story opens, Bev King and his brother Felix travel to the family homestead in Carlisle. There, they stay with cousins Dan, Felicity, and Cecily King. Together, the children will work on the farm, play together, and experience the joys and small tragedies of pre-adolescence. The novel is told from Bev King's perspective, but it is the ability of the Story Girl to tell convincing tales of adventure, romance, suspense, and even terror that moves the narrative.
If the King cousins and their friends lived in a rather more innocent age, the lessons of their adventures may still of interest to a more sophisticated age. The children will work through some moral dilemmas and their sibling rivalries while learning about telling the truth, obeying adults, and mysteries of life such as sickness, witches, ghosts, and an ancient Blue Chest. Montgomery cleverly cast her characters for dramatic effect, moving the spotlight from chapter to chapter.
Thus, the pretty and vain but domestically accomplished Felicity is often in competition with the plainer "Story Girl", who is a hilariously poor cook but has the gift of being interesting. Montgomery as an entertaining novel of childhood. I grew up reading the "Anne of" stories in the books that my mother's grandmother had given her. I have loved them all my life, though the ways that I love them somewhat change as I grow and mature. I once read that Lucy Maude Montgomery's favorite book of all the books that she had written and she was much more prolific than you might know if you're only familiar with the Anne books was The Story Girl, so I decided to see if I could buy it.
Anne of Green Gables - Wikipedia
Forgotten Books digitizes old, out-of-print books to make them available to a wider audience, and they give warnings that, though they do their best, the quality may not be perfect. I am so pleased this service exists! The quality of the print was perfect, and only the inside-front picture of a lovely woman was unclear. Since this picture is also irrelevant to the book, it was little loss.
The story itself is charming, being a tale of cousins brought together for some months at their grandparents' farm. Though in no way derivative of the lovely sense of nature exhibited in the Anne books, that same love of the natural world, of fruits and flowers and lovely skies, also permeates the book. I have only one warning for potential readers: There is a following book, but I haven't read it yet. After this kind act, Anne and Gilbert's friendship is cemented, and Anne looks forward to what life will bring next.
Based on the popularity of her first book, Montgomery wrote a series of sequels to continue the story of her heroine Anne Shirley. They are listed chronologically below, by Anne's age in each of the novels.
The province and tourist facilities have highlighted the local connections to the internationally popular novels. Anne of Green Gables has been translated into 36 languages. Many tourist attractions on Prince Edward Island have been developed based on the fictional Anne, and provincial licence plates once bore her image. The novel has been very popular in Japan, where it is known as Red-haired Anne ,   and where it has been included in the national school curriculum since Japanese couples travel to Prince Edward Island to have civil wedding ceremonies on the grounds of the Green Gables farm.
Some Japanese girls arrive as tourists with red-dyed hair styled in pigtails, to look like Anne. The park was a less expensive alternative for Japanese tourists instead of traveling to P. The park hosted performances featuring actresses playing Anne and Diana. The theme park is open during the summer season with free admission, though there are no longer staff or interpreters. The Avonlea theme park near Cavendish and the Cavendish Figurines shop have trappings so that tourists may dress like the book's characters for photos. Straw hats for girls with sewn-in red braids are common, as are bottles of raspberry cordial soda.
