She's the kind of girl everyone wants for a friend.
When Rebecca Randall goes to live with her aunts in Riverboro, she doesn't know what to expect. Rebecca has six brothers and sisters back home at Sunnybrook Farm. Aunt Jane and Aunt Miranda live all alone. They aren't used to having young people around, but Rebecca's mother has very little money, and the aunts offer to help out by having Rebecca come live with them.
Aunt Jane and Aunt Miranda are constantly surprised by Rebecca. It seems that she's always into mischief -- whether selling soap door-to-door to raise money or wearing her best pink dress without permission. Even as she grows up she never stops being herself. Throughout all her adventures, Rebecca is a girl full of surprises.
