2010 book 70

Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Little Princess
I always forget how different this is than the Shirley Temple movie version, and how its happy ending involves a monkey! I've always liked this book--Sara Crewe could easily be one of those holier-than-thou heroines, but somehow she has just enough temper, imagination, and spunk to be likable.
