I think that Hillary McKay did a great job continuing the story of the girls from Miss Minchin's school. Her writing style duplicates the original Little Princess story very well. I have read the book and I have listen to the audio and I think that both are exceptionally well done. I listened to "A Little Princess" read by Justine Eyre and she has done just as fabulous a job reading "Wishing for Tomorrow". Very nicely done!
This storyline has all the makings of a hallmark made for tv movie. I loved the first "a little princess" and for some reason, I thought the author might actually follow the adventures of Sarah. Instead, this story follows the girls 'left behind' at the boarding school. Unfortunatley, life in the boarding school is pretty dull. I find it difficult to imagine that the school mistresses would be so cruel as to provide no entertainment for the youngsters in their care. The narration was good, and if more happened... I might give it a higher rating. Other than that, this was ok, not great.
