Tabitha McMillian | 4 comments Hello, I’m trying to find a young adult book I read in middle school (like 2006 or 2007?), it had a purple/nighttime-looking cover and might have had a girl with two braids on the front. The book was about a girl who went to an orphanage or boarding school, there was a teacher (or principal/owner) who was really mean and there were some ghostly aspects to it I think. I also vaguely recall something about a fire. I thought the main character’s name was Primrose but that isn’t helping me find anything on Google so I’m not completely sure if that’s correct. It was a pretty long chapter book (like 200+ pages I’d estimate.) Thanks in advance for any suggestions !!

Tabitha McMillian | 4 comments Not Etiquette and Espionage either. If I remember correctly, it had some ghostly/haunted elements to it.
