Daddy Long Legs is a book from the 1920's about an orphan who is being send to college by an anonymous benefactor and falls in love with a really rich older guy that pushes on the edge of the 1/2 + 7 rule that is related to one of the other students. The twist in the book is that the love interest and the benefactor are the same person. It sounds really nice and romantic, until you think about it too much. I think my teacher put it best:

Its the 1900's; time to get super creepy now.
