My Review

This is the second book I read by Ivy Noelle Weir and I really enjoyed it. It is a modern retelling of Anne of Green Gables in a graphic novel form. 
This time Anne is in West Philadelphia where she finds new friends and a new family that she wasn't expecting. 
The art style is really beautiful and it matches really well with the story. I liked the turn the story took and I also enjoyed the character development. 

Rating: 4 Stars

About the book:

Anne of Green Gables with a twist: in this follow-up to Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy and The Secret Garden on 81st Street, this full-color graphic novel moves Anne Shirley to modern-day West Philadelphia, where where she finds new friends, new rivals, and a new family.

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert decide to foster a teenage girl for the first time, their lives are changed forever. Their redheaded foster daughter, Anne Shirley, is in search of an exciting life and has decided that West Philly is where she’s going to find it. Armed with a big personality and unstoppable creativity, Anne takes her new home by storm as she joins the robotics club, makes new friends in Diana and Gilbert, experiences first love, and turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. But as Anne starts to get comfortable, she discovers one thing she wasn’t looking for: a family.
