Fifteen-year-old Laura lives apart from her family for the first time, teaching school in a claim shanty twelve miles from home. She is very homesick, but keeps at it so that she can help pay for her sister Mary's tuition at the college for the blind. During school vacations Laura has fun with her singing lessons, going on sleigh rides, and best of all, helping Almanzo Wilder drive his new buggy. Friendship soon turns to love for Laura and Almanzo in the romantic conclusion of this Little House book.

    This book made me cry! It was too good. Very emotional and happy. I told my mom she had to read it, too. This book is a really good book!!!

      I love this book. I loved the part where Laura realizes she was a young lady. Also, I like the part where Ma declares it rains but it always pours. That relates to the city I live in. It drizzles but never rains.
