A Little Princess
Hodgson Burnett's tale of a wealthy little girl at boarding school who falls out of favour when Daddy's wealth disappears is a lesson in coping with changing fortunes. Sara Crewe is sent to a girl's boarding school whilst her father carries on his business in India. Pretty and rich Sara is the favourite of all, but still manages to be kind and thoughtful. When news comes that her father is dead and the money gone the boarding mistress does not feel she can throw Sara out so she makes her a housemaid, shifting her to the attic with the existing maid. Sara's imagination keeps both her fellow maid and herself sane. In the rooftops they befriend the Indian servant of the man who lives next door. It is through this friendship that Sara is discovered by the friend of her father and rescued from the clutches of the evil boarding mistress. And the servant girl is saved too (although Burnett still keeps her in her place as Sara's servant...).
