Nobody's Girl - The Hector Malot Version

Nobody's girl is a lovely novel that was written with the sole intent of teaching specific virtues such as honesty and how it pays, to children.

The story is about a young girl, Perrine, an orphan, who upon losing her mother embarks on a journey to a place called Maricourt to find her relatives who from information obtained from her mother, may not accept her.

The orphan faces various challenges in her quest to get her grandfather (who doesn't know her identity) accept her in the face of open hostility against her mother.

The book is well-written, explores simple themes which children can relate to and the happy ending is reward enough for the reader who gets emotionally attached to this young vagabond.

This is a book I would highly recommend not just to young readers but to anyone who likes a good story with a happy ending.

The story is quite interesting, given that at such a young age, the young girl mustered her courage to find her family. I think I should give it a try reading it. Thank you.
