Publisher Comments:

Nothing is quite the same at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies since Sara Crewe went away with the Indian gentleman.Lavinia is once again the girls? leader, but she hungers for a more interesting life. Lottie is still busy making mischief, as is the new neighbor, the red-headed boy. Alice, the new maid, brings a breath of fresh air and slapdash practicality to the school. But Sara is much missed ? especially by her best friend, Ermengarde. Can Ermengarde find her own way and be happy? Will she and Sara ever be able to be friends the way they were before?Hilary McKay opens the door to Miss Minchin's again and invites listeners to take a peek at the new adventures beginning in a beloved tale.

Synopsis:

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 thirteenth 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.
