bookshelves: children, classic, realistic

Mom gave this, Ginger Pye, and The Saturdays to me from her own childhood reading, and this was definitely my favorite at the time. It has a fairy tale quality to it (and no abused children), but is grounded in the dreariness of an orphanage, the desire to make a good impression, and the impossibility of understanding adults' motives!
