In this delightful sequel to A Little Princess, Sara Crewe has gone away with the Indian gentleman, and now nothing is the same at Miss Minchin's. Shy Ermengarde, spoiled Lottie, and awful Lavinia are all left behind at the Select Seminary for Young Ladies, and without Sara, school is even more dreary than before.

The new maid, Alice from Epping, is a bright girl from the country whose practicality and confidence are a refreshing change from stodgy Miss Minchin. Lottie learns to notice things and has adventures, Lavinia dreams of earning a place at Oxford, and Ermengarde realizes that friendship sometimes means keeping secrets. For her 13th birthday, Ermengarde wishes for no more Miss Minchin's, and in a fiery and dramatic climax, her wish comes true!

With a surprise visit from Sara at the end, this is a lovely story about finding your way and things coming out right.

    " I didn't know that a different person could write a sequel to someone else's work, but I'm through the first couple of chapters and she seems to have all the characters dead on. Lavinia is still as snarky as ever, Lottie as bad and poor dear Ermingard as dull and depressing, though I dare say adding a "scullery maid" that stands up to the Ms.Menchions was a nice change! Over all a nice story. "

    " As sequels written years after the original, and not by the original author, this wasn't bad. It is an "after happily ever after" sequel and possibly accurate. What did happen to the Minchin Select Seminary after their star pupil left under less than positive circumstances? The back story on how the school was started, the motivations of Lavinia and Ermegarde and Jessica - none of these things could have been part of the original, focused as it was on Sara. The book tries to maintain some of the sweetness of the original, but not so much that it makes your teeth hurt. I was surprised to enjoy it, but really did. "

    " a fairly good follow up to a little princess (though definitely not as good). i wouldn't have believed it possible for somebody to actually do this since it's pretty much impossible to top a little princess! "

    " Lovely! I'm going to go read The Little Princess, and this book, all over again! "
