Todd, Anna. The Spring Girls: A Modern-Day Retelling of Little Women. Gallery, 2018. ISBN  978-1501130717 416 pp. $

This Little Women reinvention (fractured fairy tale? fanfiction?) re-envisions Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy in present day, living on a military base in New Orleans while their father Frank is deployed and Marmee/Meredith is drinking more heavily with each passing day.

As a creative writing exercise, it’s fun, but hard to take someone messing the canon that I love.
