A book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, retold by Tania Zamorsky.

Page 22 :

I try to be nice.
But how do I know if I really am?
After all, it’s easy to be nice when your life is easy.
If my life was harder, and I went through many trials, maybe I would not be so nice.
Maybe I would be nasty!

Page 86 :

Even if I am a pretend princess in rags and tatters, I can still be a true princess, inside.

Page 121 :

The magic always comes through, doesn’t it?
Just when you think that you can’t go on, and that life is too awful, something nice happens.
The worse never quite comes.


I don’t know why but I was crying (hard) as I read this book.

Somehow I felt like I had read this before but I couldn’t remember.
