The English Roses
is a story of rivalry and friendship among schoolgirls in contemporary London. Four little girls, Nicole, Amy, Charlotte and Grace, are eleven years old and the very best of friends. They have sleepovers, picnics and ice-skating parties that exclude Binah, a beautiful girl whose seemingly perfect life makes them "green with envy." However, when a feisty, pumpernickel-loving fairy godmother takes them on a magical journey, they learn to their great surprise that Binah's life is not nearly as enviable as it had seemed. The English Roses
is an inspiring story about the importance of compassion and the rewards of friendship.
