A Little Princess

“I pretend I am a princess, so that I can try and behave like one.”

Parted from her beloved father and sent miles from home, it is very hard for Sara Crewe to like her new life at boarding school. Luckily, Sara is always dreaming up wonderful things, and her gift for telling stories wins her lots of friends. But when a letter brings disastrous news, the wicked headmistress Miss Minchin forces Sara to become a servant. Her lovely clothes and toys are taken away, and she is made to work from dawn until midnight. How will Sara cope with her newfound poverty? Can her imagination help her overcome this awful turn of fate?
