Taking place ten years after Little Men, Louisa May Alcott’s Jo’s Boys, and How They Turned Out is the third and final book in the Little Women trilogy. Originally published in 1886, two years before the author’s death, Jo’s Boys follows the lives of the young men readers came to love and cherish in its prequel. In it, we learn the fates of Jo’s sons, Rob and Teddy, along with the other boys at Plumfield Estate School.

Written in classic Alcott style, we see how the boys struggle to overcome their many flaws, in the end learning life’s lessons the hard way. Just as the March girls did, each boy must learn to deal with death, love, heartbreak, and the consequences of their actions. Audiences will feel pain and joy alongside each young man as he completes his life journey and fulfills his dreams in this classic conclusion to one of America’s most beloved series.

    " Another beautiful piece of literary history by my favorite author. "

    " This is my favorite Alcott novel, though it's definitely less well known than Little Women. The conclusion of the stories of the boys introduced in Little Men, the novel is powerful, well-written, and interesting. I think the many stories of the boys, and the fact that we've seen them grow up, adds a great second dimension to the story. "

    " I wish I were home to read this book to my son. It is all about young men and women growing up during a very innocent time in American History. The genteel mannerisms of the characters are not evident in comtemporary literature for young adults. Honor, intergrity and wholesome values are still displayed in "Jo's Boys" "Little Men" is the next book I will read, but I believe I flip flopped them. "Little Men," I think, is about the same group of boys, only when they are younger. The titles being a bit misleading boys versus men. "

    " the weakest in the Little Women trilogy. It was written when Alcott was seriously ill and it shows. Bad dialogue and a rushed ending. "
