Pollyanna, now cured of her crippling spinal injury, spends her time teaching the "glad game" to new town, and a very bitter woman Mrs. Carew. Along the way she makes new friends, such as Sadie and Jamie: Jamie is a delicate literary genius whose withered legs compel him to rely on a wheelchair and crutches. Six years later and Pollyanna and her Aunt fall upon hard times. Following the death of Dr. Chilton, as a means of making money, Pollyanna and her Aunt are forced to take in the friends Pollyanna made six years earlier as boarders. However, there are many skeletons lurking in people's closets, causing numerous misunderstandings and many revelations. Including how old childhood friend Jimmy 'Bean' Pendleton ended up alone.
