From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Anne reflects on how much she has changed since she went into hiding. She is no longer just the flirtatious little Anne who wanted to have fun. You should definitely read her description of herself. It’s pretty funny, especially how she says she was "magnanimous with my candy."
Anne sees herself as a completely different girl from the one she used to be. Now she "want[s] friends, not admirers."
She reviews all of her growth in the past two years. This is a great part to reread.
Anne is definitely happy today. She thinks there is so much beauty left in the world that everyone can be happy.
