Pollyanna Grows Up

Pollyanna Grows Up is a 1915 children's novel by Eleanor H. Porter. It is the first of many sequels to Porter's best-selling Pollyanna (1913), but is the only one written by Porter herself; the numerous later additions to the Pollyanna franchise were the work of other authors.

Plot Introduction

Pollyanna, now cured of her crippling spinal injury, spends her time teaching the "glad game" to new town, and a very bitter woman Mrs. Carew. Along the way she makes new friends, such as Sadie, and is courted by two childhood friends, Jimmy and Jamie: Jimmy a hale and hearty aspiring architect, Jamie a delicate literary genius whose withered legs compel him to rely on a wheelchair and crutches. Jimmy also finds out his family's background, and how he ended up alone.
