My Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Goodreads Summary: 

Sara Crewe's young but doting father sends her to a London boarding school when she is seven. On her eleventh birthday her life of luxury comes to an abrupt end when she receives news that her father has died, shortly after losing his entire fortune. The school-mistress turns Sara into a servant to pay off her debts, and though Sara uses the entire force of her imagination and her good heart to remember who she is and keep starvation from the door, her life is desperate. Until the past returns in a very unexpected manner...

My Review: 

  I am so happy I finally picked up this book. As a child the movie adaption was the only princess movie I actually liked/ would watch at all.

While there was a lot of differences between the two, I still enjoyed both even though it was slightly confusing at times. The one thing I didn’t like about the book though was that she hardly included Becky into her world. The only time she included her at all really was towards the end.

It was nice to see though that she did struggle with being good when she lost her riches and it wasn’t as easy to be nice and kind all of the time like she thought it was.

That ending though.. I liked the movie version of it better. The book ending was still nice and happy it just wasn’t what I was expecting.
