Summary (from Amazon):
Fourteen-year-old Lucy Maud Montgomery—Maud to her friends—has a dream: to go to college and become a writer, just like her idol, Louisa May Alcott. But living with her grandparents on Prince Edward Island, she worries that this dream will never come true. Her grandfather has strong opinions about a woman's place in the world, and they do not include spending good money on college. Luckily, she has a teacher to believe in her, and good friends to support her, including Nate, the Baptist minister's stepson and the smartest boy in the class. If only he weren't a Baptist; her Presbyterian grandparents would never approve. Then again, Maud isn't sure she wants to settle down with a boy—her dreams of being a writer are much more important.

But life changes for Maud when she goes out West to live with her father and his new wife and daughter. Her new home offers her another chance at love, as well as attending school, but tensions increase as Maud discovers her stepmother's plans for her, which threaten Maud's future—and her happiness forever. 

Why I'm Waiting:
The Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery is probably my favorite series of all time and I would love to read more about the author behind the books I prize. Lucy Maud Montgomery also seems to have many similarities to her main heroine, Anne Shirley, from Anne of Green Gables, so I know I'm going to love it.

What books are you looking forward to?
