The main plot is set on a spoiled little girl named Mary Lennox. She is sour-looking, self-absorbed, and cares about no one. When Mary is suddenly orphaned and sent to live with her uncle she has never met, she starts to unveil a new part of her person she has never seen before. As Mary continues to live in her new home, she uncovers part of a secret and is determined to find the rest of it…
I absolutely adored this novel. It had a level of mystery and wonder to it, and had a powerful message. the plot also focuses on the characters more than the plot, wich I personally appreciate in books.
I would recommend this book to every human on the planet. Take the time to read this book. It will be worth it. Like I said, the book focuses on character more than plot, so if you like that sort of thing you should get off your computer and head to the nearest library.
