Hi Sunny. "Beth" March is the second youngest sister. She's about thirteen, quiet, kind young woman and an exceptional pianist. She enjoys looking after her dolls and cats. Docile and shy to a fault, she prefers to be homeschooled and avoids most public situations. At the start of the book, Alcott describes her as a sweet girl with a round young face and brown hair, making her appear younger than her years. She is especially close to Jo, despite their very different personalities. Beth reminds me of some of my junior high students.
