"The Story Girl" chronicles the adventures and misadventures of a group of children as they grow up in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Beverley, a young boy sent (with his brother Felix) to stay with relatives while their father is away on business, narrates the novel. Their cousins: bossy Felicity, sweet Celily, and sober Dan; and the other members of the neighbourhood group: cry-baby Sara Ray and indignant Peter the hired boy; join with the Story Girl, a renowned storyteller of their own age, in spending the summer as best they can. Bev, as he is nicknamed, narrates the novel from many years on in remembrance of that summer. It is full of beautiful descriptions and amusing moments which come right out of the page.
Lucy Maud Montgomery offers an absolutely charming novel beautifully evocative of golden childhood summers in a faraway time.
