I had to read an audio book for a school project, and i chose "Eight Cousins". It is about Rose Campbell, her rowdy seven boy cousins, and her many aunts and uncles! Her guardian, doctor, and uncle, Alec, is trying to restore the rosiness in Rose's yellow cheeks. He prescribes many odd diganoses that amazingly work. Rose changes from a frail child to a warm, caring, and hearty young woman. I'm sure many other readers will laugh and cry as the touching chapters of any Alcott book are turned--I know i did! But I'd recommened this book for girls, of any age, instead of boys!
