At John Grier Orphanage, one lucky girl will be sponsored to attend Lincoln Memorial Girls' School in New Jersey - and that lucky person is Judy Abbott, a happy-go-lucky teen with high spirits and a kind heart. Judy's benefactor, whose shadow causes her to coin him as "Daddy Long Legs," has only one condition: she must write to him once a month and chronicle her new adventures. At her new home, Judy will learn about life and friendships with the help of such classmates as the rich Julia Pendleton and good friend Sally McBride.
When Emily Starr's father died, she was left in the care of her deceased mother's family, the Murrays. However, the rich and prestigious Murrays never approved of Emily's simple father, and she was thus not welcomed into loving arms. With her trusty cat and nary a possession, Emily left for her new home - New Moon - where many a joy and sorrow awaited her. Now, along with tough Ilse, artistic Teddy and loyal Perry, Emily will laugh, cry, and try to win the hearts of her new family.
While Emily of New Moon and Candy Candy both deal with an orphan (once since birth, the other since the tragic passing of her father), it's the tone and feel of the two that are the key to this recommendation. Not identical by any means, but if you liked one I think the other will be right up your alley.
