If you loved Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery...
Read My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
Anne of Green Gables was a YA paragon of honesty, integrity, and awkward grace who guided legions of girls — and more than a few boys — through the choppy waters of adolescence. If you find yourself, years later, yearning for literature flush with the love, loyalty, and female friendship that L.M. Montgomery delivered, turn to Elena Ferrante. Her exquisite rendering of friendship over the course of a lifetime, growing older in a small town, and the ties that bind us, are beautiful and poignant — Anne herself would not have been able to put these books down.
