Louisa May Alcott, who created the literary classic on coming-of-age: Little Women with Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy and Jo's best friend Laurie, their neighbour. Considered to be a semi-autobiographical work by the celebrated author, the novel is extremely popular and has been adapted into children's films several times. Alcott died in the year 1888 owing to a heart attack.

A book about young women and how they navigate childhood, adolescence and struggle with adulthood, Little Women was a novel much ahead of its time. Little Women is a must-read for every budding feminist and Alcott uses her words to educate and influence young girls about the real choices they could make in their lives.
