The indomitable 10-year-old Rebecca has been sent away from her home at Sunnybrook Farm to live with her two spinster aunts in the quiet town of Riverboro in order to be brought up as a proper little lady. Precocious, curious, and full of creative energy, Rebecca isn't quite ready to be tamed yet. The prim and demanding Aunt Miranda has her hands full. But soon, Rebecca's irrepressible spirit and bright intelligence win the hearts of all in Riverboro, including her rigid aunt...and she even manages to become a fine young lady in the process.
The unconventional and charismatic Rebecca, a wholly new kind of girl character when she was first introduced in 1903, has since become one of the most beloved characters in children's literature.
"Beautiful and warm and satisfying." (Mark Twain)
"Why could [Rebecca] not have been my daughter? Why couldn't it have been I who bought the 300 cakes of soap? Why, O, why?" (Jack London)
