Rainbowheart | 21140 comments Hi guys,

Trying to remember the title of a children's book I read in the early '90s. It was about a girl from a strict religious family who went to school for the first time. I think her family was homeschooling her, but they got a letter from the government saying she had to attend a real school.

She is conflicted about making friends with the "worldly" kids, but she does befriend a girl her own age and goes to a sleepover at her house. She was surprised by her friend's house in general, how up to date it was. I think the girl may have lived without electricity. I also remember something about curtains?

Pretty sure "girl" was in the title. I think the cover showed the girl in her long dress standing in front of a school bus.

Thanks mucho for any help!

Rainbowheart | 21140 comments That's it! I recognize the older paperback cover with the school bus.

Thanks bunches for helping. :)


Rainbowheart | 21140 comments It was Plain Girl, not Schooled, but thanks for the suggestion, Ckipp.
