Ok I just got done reading one of the best books I have ever read-
A Little Princess. It was written in 1905 by Frances Hodgeson Burnett. I have this fascination about old books, they seem so much better than all the new ones out...
This book is about a little girl from India named Sara Crewe. Her father is very rich and gives her anything she wants pretty much. She is a very clever little girl who does not let it go to her head. Her father sends her to a school so she can get a better education while he goes back to India. Since she is such like a princess, she is lovelying nickname Princess Sara by all the little kids in the school (hence the title of the book) On her 11th birthday when she is supposed to come into her iherritance, she gets word that her father has passed away and his money is gone. Now she is put to work by the headmistress of the house who did not like her anyways.
Sara was always a girl of imagination and "suppose-ing", she liked to suppose and pretend things for both her and the little girls of the school. Now, even though she has nothing and is always being pushed around now, she still makes things all the better for herself and the other little maid of the house, Becky. Through all the torture and heartaches she has to endure, inside she stills imagines she is a princess and still acts like it, not in the snotty kind of way, but it helps her remain calm when people are yelling at her and helps her know that eventually it will be alright.
I don't care if you are a guy or girl, you MUST, no excuse me, NEED to read this book. I know they have many of these books out printed by different companies so its not too hard to find a copy. It doesn't really say anything about God it in but I kind of believe its hinting at it. Throughout the entire book, Sara keeps her cool and knows it will be alright, why can't we be like this? Its truly an eye-opening book.
Also I am always on the hunt for "new" (I would actually rather have the books written years ago than the ones today), exciting books to read , do you guys have any favorites? I have already read Little Women and Little Men which were both fabulous! Anything like those books I love.
