This title puts a fresh design spin on a well loved novel, which remains the same as the "Great Expectations" that has been cherished for 150 years. It is a fashion-forward, runway inspired package targeted to teens. It is aimed at those aged 12 years and upwards. When Philip Pirrip, nicknamed Pip, is forced by an escaped convict to steal food and supplies from his meagre home, he doesn't know that this event will transform his life. One of Dicken's most popular novels, "Great Expectations" follows the orphaned Pip as he grows from poverty into a gentleman, becoming entangled with the strange Miss Havisham and her beautiful but cold-hearted ward, Estella, and coming into a fortune from an unknown benefactor. This engrossing work, which recently celebrated its 150th birthday, remains one of Dickens' best-loved.
