by Jean Webster

Image result for daddy long legs by jean websterA classic novel documenting the story of orphan Judy Abbott as she receives the chance to become an author, provided by a mysterious benefactor she lovingly nicknames "Daddy Long Legs".

Daddy Long Legs is written in a letter format, from Judy to Daddy Long Legs, and is an unusual yet refreshingly satisfactory book. I loved Daddy Long Legs for its rare and unique writing style. Even though it's a classic and was written long ago, the plot twists were amusing and surprising at the same time.

I would recommend this book to girls of any age, or to anybody who likes reading books with a bit of a old-fashioned flair. If you also enjoy reading things with a diary-like format, this book is for you!

Erica, 16
