This is a book for all who believe in magic.

One word; wow! This is the perfect children's classic. This book is about the coming of age of a young girl. Its also about magic and believing in magic so intensely that it has to be real! This book teaches its readers that even in the face of darkness, there is always hope, even if we cannot see it all of the time. Sarah is the main protagonist in this story and she immediately drew me in to the book. She is intelligent and extraordinarily imaginative, which only makes the story feel more real. She is very kind and generous even when she has nothing. This is something that I absolutely adore about her! Her relationship with Ram Dass and Mr. Carrisford, is one of undeniable friendship and this is what makes the story so uplifting, Miss. Minchin is one of those characters who you love to hate and you can't until she gets her comeuppance! This story is beautifully written from the third person with a tone that is heavy but uplifting, it describes the trauma of story but it also continually looks for things to lift the reader out of the dark situation and into a more magical story. With a back drop of an English girls school in the middle of the 19th century, the setting is perfect for this story of a little girl who was born to stand out from the rest of her schoolmates. The narration of the story was beautiful. It was pleasant to listen to and I loved the different tones for the different characters! It was great narration of a great story!
And to finish on one of my favorite quotes and probably the most famous quotes from the story; “I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses.”
