Sourcebooks Contest!
by L. M. Montgomery!

We are happy to share a super cool event
that Sourcebooks Casablanca has going on right now!

Anne of Green Gables
L. M. Montgomery

An unforgettable character beloved by generations of readers

Redheaded orphan Anne Shirley longs for a real home, somewhere she can truly belong. When she first arrives at the Green Gables house on Prince Edward Island, it's everything she ever imagined. But to stay, she'll first have to convince Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert to adopt her. And that means controlling her temper (even when Gilbert Blythe calls her "Carrots"), staying out of trouble (and away from hair dye), and not getting too carried away with her daydreams (though she would make the perfect Lady of Shallot floating down the river). Anne might not always get it quite right, but she does keep things interesting...

Through Anne's eyes, the ordinary world becomes magical and every day is an adventure. She inspires the dreamer in all of us, never hesitates to say the things we wish we could get away with, and makes us cherish every kindred spirit we meet. It's no surprise Anne is loved around the world by generations of readers.

This new edition lovingly restores the original, unabridged text and includes an all-new, exclusive introduction with special memories from L.M. Montgomery's granddaughter.
I grew up reading this series and watching the television show. I am so thrilled that Sourcebooks is relaunching the series with these brilliant new covers! Oh and Sourcebooks is reintroducing them with style. Tons of fun things for readers on their website and lots of giveaways!
