Day 25: A character you relate to most

 

Jo March. Absolutely Jo March. I first met Jo when I was 8 or 9, and we instantly hit it off. She was several years older than me, but we still seemed to click. 

 

She was a tomboy - at least as much as she could be, given her situation. But she wasn't like the other girls her age. She did her own thing, and that made it seem easier for me to do my thing.

 

Through my childhood, adolescence, and into my 20s, Jo March was a friend I could relate to and count on.

 

I reread Little Women just last week, and I still clicked with Jo more so than with any other character.
