Little Woman has captured the hearts of many and it looks like it will not be going away anytime soon! Melissa de la Cruz, known for her popular children’s books The Descendants, and the Alex and Eliza Trilogy, has co-written a new novel with author Margaret Stohl, the author of Rolls Royce. Together, they wrote a new take of the classic Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.



This new sequel focuses on the characters Jo and Laurie as they grow into adulthood. They also deal with their relationship and how they truly feel for each other. It takes place after Jo finishes writing her novel.

Bustle has released the beautiful cover, which you can see down below.

If Jo and Laurie broke your heart in Greta Gerwig’s film adaptation, then hopefully this book will mend it. Readers can pre-order Jo and Laurie today. The book will be released June 2.
