My daughter was given this book as a birthday present (she's 9). She enjoyed it very much. The story is about a little girl called Ruby who no one seems very interested in. This changes as the story progresses, but not at first for the best as various unscrupulous people try to use her for their own ends. Ruby however finds she's made of tougher stuff than she had thought and prevails in the end to find happiness and love. The book is in comfortable size print for confident and not so confident readers, and their are lots of quaint pictures.
