The Times My Heart Broke Reading as a Child

Looking back I was either a really emo kid, or there are a lot of sad moments in children's/ young adult literature. Warning- spoilers exist.
  1. Beth dies in Little Women
  2. Jack the brindled bulldog dies in Little House on the Prairie
  3. Matthew buys the dress for Anne in Anne of Green Gables- it is such a lovely moment for them. And then I get sad because I know what is coming...which brings me to 4-
  4. Matthew dies in Anne of Green Gables
  5. Old Yeller's Fate. I can't read this book or watch the movie as a grownup. Too many tears
