Unloved and unwanted, orphan Pollyanna Whittier boards an eastbound train to live with her Aunt Polly, a wealthy spinster. Aunt Polly treats the child insensitively, giving her a musty room in the attic and expecting her to keep quiet and stay out of the way. Pollyanna, with her optimistic outlook on life, turns all the lemons thrown her way into lemonade; punishments are viewed as rewards, unfriendly people in town are befriended. Pollyanna's "Glad Game" is soon played by all the people of the town. A terrible accident with a motor car as she is crossing the street finally breaks Pollyanna's spirit. When long-held secrets are finally revealed, even Aunt Polly comes around to warming up not only to her niece, but to a relationship she had long denied herself. "Pollyanna Grows Up" is the sequel to the 1912 classic, Pollyanna and it is surprisingly just as wonderful as the first. Eleanor H. Porter maintained all the magic of the original novel in this very exciting continuation which takes us far away from our well known town of Beldinsville to the grand City of Boston. Fully recovered from her previous automobile accident, Pollyanna returns once again to the city of Boston to cheer up the sister of her nurse’s friend, a despondent Mrs. Carew. Pollyanna soon changes things around, at first driving Mrs. Carew mad but soon she enters her heart. If you enjoyed Pollyanna, you will definitely enjoy the further adventures of the glad girl and all of her old and new friends, which is a great sequel to that unforgettable classic!
