Elizabeth March is one of four daughters from a prestigious family. The only reason she stands out from her sisters' extraordinary beauty and talent is because she's talentless. After her acceptance into the same academy at which all her sisters study, Elizabeth encountered a chain of interesting situations, including getting off to the wrong start with a rich boy named Adrian.

guys are handsome at least
I don't have much to add, just look to the unsatisfied reviews and you have my opinions.
Beth is irritating. I have not read the book that this series is based on ( Little Women) but I can say that it would make more sense than this. Throughout the series, I just keep wondering: "Why is she doing that? Is she stupid? Why is that guy acting that way? He's a human being right?"
i love it very much
i love this manhwa. everyone else is saying it's random and unpredictable but i love it. i haven't figured out who she'll go out with yet and that's saying something bcos i usually figure out the relationships at the beginning of the story.
I've read the first volume and it kind of irritate me.. I don't know why, maybe because I really love Jo from the Little Woman, so I can't accept that she is not the troublesome one in the manga (not that I'm trying to push my ideal).. beside I find beth as annoying, her action, attitude are so urgh...anyway, maybe I should give it a chance once the series is finish...
To be honest, I was actually expecting something interesting... But the main character is just so irritating. Her actions and thought process irritate me to no end. I understand that she has a lot of pressure and all, but that doesn't mean she has to fly into a rage all the time. She also doesn't think about the consequences of her actions. And how the hell did she fall in love with Greg. Someone shows her a little kindness and she's suddenly all over him. She's so weak. The art is beautiful. However the plot is just all over the place. I just don't really feel any substance from the story... The main character goes on like she knows everything, but she doesn't even understand her own feelings.

Nice Twist on the Novel
I haven't read too far into this (don't expect me to know all the plot points... but do I plan to read this once it's completed), but I have read enough to make a logical judgement on my first thoughts. I have read the original novel 'Little Women', and the story is very mildly inspired from Little Women. 'Little Women' is the story of four sisters in America. They are not rich, their father is at war, but they still manage to live on, grow up, find their passions (the four girls are actually implied have individual passions and talents) find love, make friends, and make the best of life - you know the usual coming-of-age stories. The author of 'Dear My Girls' takes the idea of four sisters and gives it a giant twist - these sisters are now rich, extremely talented, beautiful girls adored by all... Well, all the sisters but Beth. The author has made BETH the clumsy troublemaker! Beth, who was the frail, innocent, lovable, delicate third sister in the novel, Beth is a clumsy troublemaker? This is a very smart twist... As somebody who as read the novel, this is very clever. It seems like a very good shoujo twist to Little Women, the concept is fresh, the art is nice, and if the author can just execute the story out well without too many cliches, it'd be great...
For some reason I find it interesting! I usually don't like historical ones like this, but I gotta say I enjoy this one! And the love triangle in this is dangerous! I don't know which guy should win!!!!!
It's worth checking out
Not my all time favorite manga, but interesting enough, with a strong lead and all sorts of romantic triangles to keep your interest. The problem is, there's not much else. So far, it seems that all that's happened is relationship development. But I guess there's still time for stuff to happen (it's currently only on it's 18th chapter).
So to sum it up, it's not incredible, but it's worth checking out. My guess is that, if you are a shoujo fan of any kind, you'll like it but you won't necessarily love it. But I could be wrong.
At least the setting is unique (Victorian boarding school). Although, I'm not sure how historically accurate it is. It doesn't seem likely to me that there would be a lot of coed boarding schools happening back then. Or any at all, for that matter. But whatever. Sometimes you just have to say goodbye to historical accuracy. :-)

Ive gotta say that the manga artist picked a terrible book to turn into a manga. Ive heard of Little Women and its the most boring book in HISTORY! Its out right random with no plot and boring characters. Although some people might find this version better because of the nice art, the art cant keep my attention away from the story line, sorry.
It's strange, but this is all I can think about this title. It's just strange. Now, I have a thing for reading shoujo mangas for no apparent reason anyway but this one is just weird (though I'll keep reading it regardless). To put it simply:
You can't tell where it's going.
Normally you'd think that last sentence would be a good thing (a sign of plot twists and whatnot), but this one just doesn't make any sense. Half the time I'm spending time thinking about the characters' motivations and actions, and wondering whether this thing is going to go ANYWHERE AT ALL. To put it into a picture form, think of all of the people in relationships (or close to being in them) as scales. The author is (repeatedly) randomly putting weights onto either side of the scale that make each character lean towards one side or the other, but the actual reason for this doesn't make any sense (or more often it just doesn't exist). About the only relationship that seems developed towards one definite end is... well I won't mention his name but I'm sure you'll find out. Even then there's no real explanation for why he's just randomly and almost suddenly going after this chick... the setting is confusing as all hell.
Everyone else just seems to be randomly tilting one way or another.
They're also doing random stuff all of the time. As in, I can't make sense of who's where at what time and why the action is happening there, or why they would be there in the first place. It's fine to just say that "this is happening here" as an explanation for showing a scene, but in the overall scheme of things many of these "scenes" happen to be completely pointless. I can't tell if they're convenient or not to the plot or anything of the sort... because they don't make sense in the first place.
I don't know what novel everyone's talking about, but I hope to god the novel is easier to follow than this... THING.
Ah, but the art is good, and the characters chicks look hot/cute/whatever. That's at least one positive...
Now that's not to say it doesn't have its other fun parts.
Each distinctive scene is somewhat fun to follow, and you eventually may start getting some sense of character development...
But it just has too little coherence. The way the thing is laid out is just far too random, and there's too much stuff going on at once, that the author apparently has trouble tying together.

artwork amazing but thats about it
this manga has amazing art. Other than that in terms of plot and characters it isn't that good. Its OK. i don't really like the lead character that much as I don't understand some of her actions. Some of her reactions are quite realistic which is good and others are plain boring and stupid and annoying. I also didn't like her first love interest. I don't like the other characters either as they all feel pretty one dimensional. Art is one of the few things thats making me keep on reading dis manwha. But then again this has just started so therefore goota wait and see if mangaka can develop charcaters better over time.
