Retelling a childhood favorite

Ana of California

Ana of California is a modern retelling of Anne of Green Gables (one of my favorite childhood books). In this version, she is a Hispanic foster child. The history that she is given – her outlook on the world should be much darker than it is. But optimism is one of Ana/Anne’s signature traits, and it is no different here.

It is not as good as the original. But it is still about family and home and how we make the world we live in. It’s still enjoyable.
