" I loved this book growing up. Strangely, I also loved 1984. Anyway, I think Pollyanna has been maligned when people use her name derisively (i.e "Oh she is so pollyannaish.") Pollyanna had a hard life and was trying to look at life differently. Also, when I saw the movie with Hayley Mills I had a crush on her. (I was somewhere in my early teens.) "
