Anne of Green Gables is a 1908 novel by L. M. Montgomery. It is considered a classic in children's literature. Set in the late 19th century, the novel recounts the adventures of an 11-year-old orphan girl, who is sent by mistake to two middle-aged sisters who had originally intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm. Anne of Green Gables was banned in German- and Soviet-occupied Poland during World War II because the main character embodied individuality, loyalty to family, and resistance to authority. Anne is a feminist in the novel and rejects the objectification of young girls. If you are a collector of banned books, this is a novel you want on your library shelf.
