Sense and Sensibility Isabela Bianchini
I'm reading a book, which is Sense and Sensibility.The book is about a girl that must leave their family home and the beautiful Norland Park. When her father died, she and her mother, Mrs Dashwood, and her sisters, Elinor and Margaret, must move to a small cottage in Devon. The girl falls in love with the handsome John Willoughby and her sister Elinor misses Edward Ferrars, the man she had to leave behind. Jane Austen wrote the book. Macmillan published this book. The book has 118 pages, it was printed in Thailand in 2009. I chose this book because I think the book’s cover is very nice, and the book is cool because it has an interesting story.
