Pollyanna Grows Up

by Eleanor Hodgman Porter

This book is a sequel to Pollyanna, by the same author. It is not quite as good. It gets a bit preachy in places (poverty is bad!) and there is a convoluted sub-plot with a boy called Jamie that was a bit contrived. I was dismayed to see Aunt Polly so regress as a character in a way I did not think was fair. This was not a horrible read, but it for sure was not as good as the original.
