By Frances Hodgson Burnett
“If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.”

Sara Crewe, a kindhearted and generous girl, is doted upon by her father and, upon arriving at Miss Minchin’s boarding school for girls in London, is set up with all the luxuries that can be afforded to her. When tragedy arises, and her station in life goes from riches to rags, she maintains the confidence and compassionate heart that she was raised with, despite the cruel treatment she undergoes.
This story is about a young girl’s fortitude amid severe trials, a wonderful example of character despite one’s circumstances, and the power of friendship and kindness.
Death of a parent and child neglect.
