When I first heard the title of this book, it made me think of the wispy little spiders with long legs.  But I assure you, this book has nothing to do with spiders.  It is the story of an orphan girl through the letters she writes to her secret benefactor.  The orphan girl calls her benefactor Daddy-Long-Legs because all she has ever seen of him is his shadow with really long legs.  It is a delightful story with a twist at the end.  Perfect reading for middle school and up.  A true classic.

Genre:  orphanage life, college life, romance, correspondence

That sounds like an interesting one that I don't think I have ever read. I should check it out.
