I read this book a LOOOOOONG time ago, and I have never touched it since, nor do I have the greatest memory, but I can honestly say that this book has never, EVER left my mind, ever.
I still remember the main character with utter clarity, and her story inspired me so incredibly. The ending was astounding, and I still remember the way I had actually sobbed when I reached the last page. The book was that good!
This is a story I will never forget, and I recommend every young reader to give this book

actually it's called Daisy May, and I would've liked to have seen how it ended. I mean, okay, she grows up as a famous actress like she wanted but I'd like to know how she accomplished that

This is a very good book, recommended for readers growing in confidence. A story of a young girl who spends the first years of her life in a Foundling Hospital, but who dreams of better. The vocabulary in the book is a good balance between common words and longer words, ideal for developing a child's confidence. A lovely story, worth a read.
