Little Women: Anna Todd Spring Sisters brings classic story to modern times

Her new book is called ‘The Spring Girls’

Posted on

Anna Todd is turning her attention from fan fiction to the March sisters. The best-selling author of the After series has reimagined Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women for the modern era.

Todd’s new book, The Spring Girls, was inspired by the story of four sisters during the Civil War, but now the March girls have cellphones (and social media).

“I’m so excited for readers to get their hands on The Spring Girls,” Todd says, calling the original Little Women “one of my all-time favorites.”

Todd says she had this idea in her head for a while and “can’t wait to share it with everyone.” The author gained fame after she published a story of One Direction fan fiction on Wattpad. The After book series is based off of the internet sensation.
