"Heidi is only five when she goes to live with her grandfather in his hut in the Swiss Alps. She befriends the goatherd Peter and delights in the company of the goats. Everyone is sad when she is taken to live with a family in Frankfurt, but her courage help her manage to return to the mountains." (Amazon.com)
I will admit that this is more of a children's book than young adult. Heidi Grows Up and Heidi's Children seemed more mature and were far more interesting to me; but Heidi is a classic and I love it.
