Name: Sara Hunnewell _____ [Date: 10/17/08]
Title: Women. Girls.
Subject: An emphasis on an impact for young women.

Review/comment: I have always found this story endearing. Perhaps the happy ending, as I have always enjoyed them, struck a cord... I knew this story since my youth. My mother read it to me as a child, and as I grew older and knew the story by heart I told it to my younger sister. I think as a grown woman I cling to the magic and hope of these princess stories. As a child I always hoped that I would be such a girl as Sara Crewe. It seemed possible enough... now that I am grown, I hope that the sad parts of my life will spin in my favor much as it did for Sara. I hope I one day have a girl child who can grow up believing that all girls can be a princess, and I hope this story continues to instill young girls with the desire to use their imagination and to pick up books as a way of seeing far off lands. It's hard to really demonstrate the impact this book has had on me throughout my life, but I certainly feel more female for having read it and I certainly feel more of a princess for having the child's story come to life in the lines and paragraphs before me.
