(4.6 stars; 40 reviews)

The four series follow Grace Harlowe and her friends through high school, college, abroad during World War I, and on adventures around America. In The High School Girls Series, Grace attends Oakdale High School with friends Anne Pierson, Nora O'Malley, and Jessica Bright. The four promote fair play and virtue while winning over troubled girls like Miriam Nesbit and Eleanor Savell, playing basketball, and founding sorority Phi Sigma Tau. The group becomes friends with boys in their acquaintance: David Nesbit, Tom Gray, Hippy Wingate, and Reddy Brooks, forming "The Eight Originals." (Summary by Wikipedia) (4 hr 23 min)

If you lament over the over abundance of easily offended people nowadays, read this book. Not much has changed, except that forgiveness was a word in people’s vocabulary. This is a good series, nice reader although a few mispronunciations, but certainly no match to Anne of Green Gables! The series becomes a bit repetitive and loop-holey after a while. If you are looking for great classics, I recommend Jane Austen’s books (start with Sense and Sensibility for an easier listen), The Princess of Mars for a classic sci-fi, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court for a witty and entertaining book, any of E. Nesbit’s books for kids, and L.M. Montgomery’s books. However, the Grace Harlowe series is a good one for people who love likable characters and ongoing series.
