In the spirit of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES comes this delightful turn-of-the-century journal of a feisty, imaginative young girl who is finding her voice and also the courage to make it heard. It's the year 1901, and fourteen-year-old aspiring writer Mable Riley is on her way to fulfilling her dreams, or so she hopes. At first, it seems that life within the new town is as humdrum as the one she left behind. Designed as a vintage journal including diary entries, letters, poems, and Mable's own"Romantic Novel,"MABLE RILEY is a reliable record of a young girl's coming of age at a time of women's early struggles for independence - a charmingly told tale that is as funny as it is inspiring. And Mrs. Rattle has a few shocking secrets as well, including a dangerous plan that might soon bring Mable a lot more peril and romance than she bargained for! But then Mable meets a real writer, a single who wears daring fashions and enjoys shocking the townsfolk by sharing her opinions. She's sure that moving with her sister to a faraway town will bring adventures complete of peril and romance to write about!
