The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

I have heard The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett being talked about for most of my life, it being one of my mom’s childhood favorites, so I was pretty excited to read it for my English class. But I was actually disappointed by it. The main character, Mary, was whiny, and the other main character, Colin thought that his life was over because he was told he was sickly, which is very ableist. This book did talk about everyday magic and the joy of growing things, but I did not really enjoy reading it overall.
