This week I read the secret garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Here are your reviews:
Mary lives in a place where her parents don’t want to see or hear her. Instead she is taken care of by Ayah, her Indian servant. So she grows up to be a ugly sickly, yellow thin-faced, yellow haired child with a sour expression. But one day she is woken up by another servant who tries to softly tell her that Ayah died the night before. Then her parents pack up everything and abandon her, then die. So after she is found she is sent to another family with 5 children and is called ‘Mistress Mary, quite contrary.’ remember that rhyme? Then she is sent to her uncle‘s place and starts to explore. She befriends Ben Weatherstaff, the Gardner, Dickon, the animal charmer, Martha the fretful house maid, a mischievous robin, and her cousin Colin. And discovers, with the robins help, The secret garden.
Here’s what I love bout this book: This book gives you a sence of hope.It has nature, secrets, mystery, and a touch of anger and sympthy. It pulls you back time and time again I have read it like 10 times at least.
Next week I am reading the white dolphin.
