Jean Webster (pseudonym for Alice Jane Chandler Webster 1876 - 1916) was an American writer and author of many books including Daddy-Long-Legs and Dear Enemy. Her best-known books feature lively and likeable young female protagonists who come of age intellectually, morally and socially but with enough humor, snappy dialogue and gently biting social commentary to make her books palatable and enjoyable to contemporary readers.
