Cocoa (brandedcocoabeans) | 16 comments As a disclaimer, I am remembering this from a film, but I'm fairly sure that it was based on a book (probably a classic). I remember a part where the main character wakes up in boarding school (or possibly an orphanage) to find her friend very ill. She gets taken to a different room I think (there is a lot of sweating and coughing) and then it's he dies. (In the film at least) it cuts to the girl quite a few years later when I think she is a teacher/nanny that teaches.

Thank you in advance!
(I know it's not really a book but as i say I am fairly sure it's an adaptation)

We'll need to wait for the original poster, Alix, to confirm.
