The girls embark on a series of adventures and endure a number of unexpected misfortunes experiences that allow their personalities to emerge- Meg sensible and outgoing, Jo literary and boyish, Beth musical and shy, and Amy artistic and selfish but the bonds holding together the March family remain unbroken.
