George Eliot

‘She was looking for a key to understand. Then she could deal with the heavy weight that had fallen on her young heart’.

Maggie is a curious girl. She asks many questions. And she wants some answers. What do people mean when they say she is too intelligent? When can she go to school like her brother? Why is a girl’s hair so important? As she gets older her questions change but her curiosity remains just as strong. Walk with Maggie and read her story to find out if she gets some  answers to these questions.
