Publisher Description

First published in 1912, this classic epistolary novel is a delightful modern fairy tale about a plucky young orphan in search of her destiny.
 
For Jerusha Abbott, life has been anything but easy. Left to be raised in the bleak John Grier Home orphanage by unknown parents, she has no idea what her future holds, but her spirit and cheerful outlook have always kept her going. This resolute hopefulness captures the attention of a mysterious benefactor, a man Jerusha comes to know as Daddy-Long-Legs, who sees in her the potential for greatness as a writer. In return for a college education and generous allowance, Daddy-Long-Legs asks only one thing: that Jerusha write him a letter every month telling of her experiences and thoughts.
 
Thus begins the new life of Jerusha—now Judy—as she explores a world she never dreamed available to her. Through her letters, readers can follow the education and realization of a young woman seeking her place in both school and society, steadfastly refusing to let others decide her fate or fortune, in a charming and witty adventure of both heart and mind.
