It's been decades since my last reading, so I can't pinpoint any moments of interest for a discussion, but I appreciated that the sisters were such individuals. Obviously Jo is a favorite among modern women, she was a break-through character for those of us reading before the year 2000. (that would actually be a good discussion point for your Girl Scouts -- how Jo's character was controversial a century ago, but may seem ordinary and normal in today's society).

I read it as a child with my mom in Italian and read it again only a few months for my reading challenge with a friend in English. It felt like reading two different books.

This book was way ahead of its time in the characterisation of Jo. To me, it’s a timeless classic.

As simple as this book is. It teached me a lot of what woman can do with enough passion and drive. Even though I dont agree 100% with Jo, I do feel somehow related to her. In a carreer dominated by men, it is sometime hard to be seen, of course her time is very different but as a female electronic engineer I've had my share of rejections. She is an inspiration to every girl.
