thinking of this book just makes me want to hurl. gah, this is like the barfy-est book EVER. it's a total rip-off of anne of green gables--which also sucks. the whole thing is just like, "oh i'm a poor little orphan girl, but despite my troubles i see the bright side of everything, and i soften the hearts of all the mean old people around me!!' pollyanna is a very dull and unrealistic main character; i couldn't stand her at all. as you can probably tell, i hate these inspirational kind of books, and pollyanna is no exception. gee that was really harsh of me, but i really did not like this book. at all.
