The cruel Miss Minchin takes away all of Sara's lovely things and makes her work in the kitchen.How can a little princess go from riches to rags?
Fine book about a girl overcoming great odds and keeping her hope up. Does not have a typical happy ending, but it is a realistic ending like the ones we encounter in our lives, and everything does work out in the end.
Sara Crewe is a student at Miss Minchin's fancy boarding school. She has the very best of everything. But when he rich father dies, she's left without a penny. Now Sara lives in the cold attic and works for crusts of bread.
This book has written inside of it "Happy Birthday, Marlinton Presbrterian Church '02". If this is a problem, then please do no request it. Other wise the book is in good condition and really is an excellent story.
