My dislikes: Being an orphan, having red hair, being called ‘carrots’ by Gilbert Blythe.
My likes: Living at the Green Gables with Marilla and Matthew, my bosom-friend Diana, dresses with puff sleeves.
My regrets: Dying my hair green. Smashing a slate over Gilbert Blythe’s head.
My dream: To tame my temper. To be good (this is an uphill struggle). To grow up to have auburn hair!

Featuring one of L.M. Montgomery's most beloved characters, Emily Starr moves to New Moon Farm after the death of father, lost. But as she gets to know the people of New Moon she thinks she may end up finding a place to belong.
Orphaned after her father's death, thirteen-year-old Emily Starr is sent to live with her snobbish relatives at New Moon Farm. At first, Emily's miserable under all the rules from her stern Aunt Elizabeth. And being the new girl at school is not easy. At least New Moon provides plenty of material for the short stories she loves to write. With her quick wit and lively imagination, it's not long before she finds friends in tomboy Ilse and artist Teddy. And even though Emily can't seem to stay out of trouble for long, New Moon may just start to feel like home after all...
This new edition of a classic favorite restores the original, unabridged text and includes an all-new, exclusive introduction with special memories from L.M. Montgomery's granddaughter.
