Correcting literary wrongs has never been so right
Emily is sick and tired of being a middle sister. So when
she gets an assignment to describe what she'd change about a
classic novel, Emily pounces on Little Women. After all, if
she can't change things in her own family, maybe she can
bring a little justice to the March sisters. (Kill off Beth?
Have cute Laurie wind up with Amy instead of Jo? What was
Louisa May Alcott thinking?!) But when Emily gets
mysteriously transported into the 1860s world of the book,
she discovers that righting fictional wrongs won't be easy.
And after being immersed in a time and place so different
from her own, it may be Emily--not the four March
sisters--who undergoes the most surprising change of all.
