Virginia was out growing her coat and needed a new one. When the donation box arrives, she sees the most beautiful fur coat and she badly wants it. However, she is the daughter of a Episcopal priest and her family always picks last from the box. A classmate picks the fur coat and Virginia holds back the tears.This is a biographical and I think it is very relatable. I know as a kid and my parents not having much money, we often had to do without a lot of things and other people getting the stuff we want. The story was actually a little sad, but had a nice ending. This was really a wonderful book.
