A new chapter to the story of Sara Crew has been cleverly crafted by Hilary McKay who picks up the threads at Miss Minchin’s after Sara has left and, in particular, the loneliness of Sara’s friend Ermengarde who is teased mercilessly by her peers. Ermengarde’s life is transformed by the attention of her Aunt Eliza but Ermengarde cannot rest until she has made her peace with Sara. She has to do everything she can to see Sara before she returns to India. A must for all readers who like Hilary McKay herself have asked, “What happened next?” ~ Julia Eccleshare

Hilary McKay revisits Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies after the events of A Little Princess and Sara Crewe's happily ever after. But Sara is much missed - and most acutely by best friend Ermengarde, who laments that 'nothing is the same as it was before'. But life must go on at Miss Minchin's as new friendships are made, rivalries continued, lessons learned and, most importantly, fairytale endings are had.
