A classic from childhood. Actually, I remember the movie better, with Haley Mills as Pollyanna (I think). The classic plot of poor little wonderful girl who becomes an orphan, moves in with an unsympathetic relation (aunt), and gradually turns the cold hard woman into a loving person. All the while, making friends with everyone in town, all of whom love her. Tragic accident, misery, eventual recovery. It is a wonderful book, full of optimism, happiness and a positive mental outlook. I recommend it to anyone who needs a lift and is tired of violence, misery, gratuitous sex and profanity.
