Sarah Crew is the daughter of the wealthy Captain Crew. Sarah and her father both lived in India, until the climate was poor in India and it wasn’t safe for children to live there. Captain Crew decided it was best for his daughter to be safe, so they left India on a boat set for London. Once they arrived in London, they took Sarah to a boarding school for young ladies. They made arrangements for Sarah to stay for 2 years and have everything that she asked for. A year later, war breaks out and Captain Crew is sent to battle. Just at the end of the battle, Captain Crew gets shot. The last words he said were about his little girl…
This is a fantastic book for 3d-4th grade girls, because it shows them what it means to be a princess. I have asked myself, if I could change anything about this book, what would I change about it? NOTHING!!, is my answer. For me it is an unforgettable and tragic, but I know in my heart that Sarah Crew is a little princess.
