A Little Princess - Frances Hodgson Burnett

She's shouting to (at, but given the context....) her doll. I can read it straight, and it's a heart-breaking picture of lost innocence and the death of illusions, or I could read between the lines and say she's identifying with the doll and venting some self-hatred, which adds a layer of insight that makes it quite the unexpected bitter pill for a children's book. Hats off.
