A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Sara Crewe is a spoiled, but kind, little girl, dropped off at age 7 to live and learn at Miss Minchin’s Seminary for Girls. She is given anything she wants and soon becomes very popular with most of the girls (though one in particular is very jealous of Sara). When her papa loses his money and dies destitute, Miss Minchin turns Sara into a servant and begins to treat the child very poorly. A man from Sara’s homeland of India moves in next door and soon magic begins to happen and not just in Sara’s imaginative head.

I absolutely loved A Little Princess! The story is sweet and fun to read. It’s easy to guess how it will end, but that adds to the enjoyment. I highly recommend this book to people of all ages!
