Question Laura?

I can't believe there's an L.M. Montgomery book that I've never heard of. Tell me about The Story Girl! Are you an Anne fan?

I'll post an Amazon description. I LOVE ANNE!! I love most of Montgomery's work. Emily of New Moon is my absolute favorite of all time. Of the Anne Series I love the first of course( I still cry when Matthew dies) and then Anne of Ingleside the best. The Story Girl has a sequel called The Golden Road but i couldn't find it the other day.

The Story Girl by L.M. Montgomery
Sara Stanley is only fourteen, but she can weave tales that are impossible to resist. In the charming town of Carlisle, children and grown-ups alike flock from miles around to hear spellbinding tales. And when Bev King and his younger brother Felix arrive for the summer, they, too, are captivated by the Story Girl. Whether she's leading them on exciting misadventures or narrating timeless stories -- from the scary "Tale of the Family Ghost" to the fanciful "How Kissing Was Discoverd" to the bittersweet "The Blue Chest of Rachel Ward" -- the Story Girl has her audience hanging on every word. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Golden Road by LM Montgomery
When Sara Stanley, the Story Girl, returns to Carlisle to spend the winter with the King family, she comes up with a great idea. To help them through the dreary months ahead, she, Felicity, Cecily, and Dan will publish a magazine. From "Personals" to "Fashion Notes" to an etiquette column and stories of the most interesting happenings in Carlisle, Our Magazine quickly becomes the most entertaining publication anyone in town has ever read. But seasons pass, nothing is forever -- and soon it will be time for the Story Girl to leave her good friends on Prince Edward Island, friends with whom she has walked the golden road of youth. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If I'm not mistaken, aren't those the characters from the Avonlea TV series? I didn't watch it, but remember the character names.

Yeeah they used those characters and tied them in with Chronicles of Avonlea stuff but in the books it's very much a seperate story in a different town and Rachel Lynde isn't in it at all.

I also like the Blue Castle by LM Montgomery. It's a stand alone and has a good plot.
