Front cover of a book published in 1895
From the last days of the 19th century comes to us a
story very much similar to today's Harry Potter minus
the magic. This is the tale of a little girl, Sara Crewe, who
is brought by her father to a boarding school for "select
young ladies" in London.
The book takes us through all the pains and challenges
faced by both teachers and students at such a place.
It is fiction allright, but it sure feels so much like we
would imagine every day life to be for any student
confined to the rigors of boarding school.
These are 83 pages worth reading for adults or children.
Also it would be a pretty neat book to own if your name
happens to be Sara Crewe.
