Book Challenge Day 6: A book that makes you cry

Alcott's novel about life on the Civil War home front, is a moving piece of literature. Jo is one of my all time favorite characters, and they dynamic of her family is precious. This book makes my cry for two reasons 1. Beth, I won't ruin it, but man it gets me every time 2. Amy and Lori coming home. When I was younger, I was always angry at Alcott for not giving Jo the romantic ending that I longed for, but as I get older, I appreciate the end and the message it shares with young girls.
