During last year’s A-Z Challenge, I talked about my fascination with Jo March and Little Women.  I just can’t stay away from the topic!

That’s why J is for…

Jo March from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women

Jo is an awesome character.  She’s a writer, the second oldest of four girls, and a dreamer.  Jo is still a bit unconventional, even a century and a half after she first appeared in Little Women; although each of the surviving March sisters gets to have her own brand of adventure, Jo moves away from home to live in New York City.  She supports herself as a writer (until she has a rather uncalled for morality lecture), and she continues to dream big throughout the story.

There have been so many film adaptations of this beloved book, and actresses like Katherine Hepburn and Winona Ryder have brought the sassy, creative Jo to life.

Which of the March sisters is your favorite?
