Shirley

£12.99

Product description

Twenty-eight-year-old Cranry Bennett is a single woman who runs a bustling cafe in Victorian England. Though she doesn't feel the need to marry, she does need some help around the house, thus putting out an ad for a maid in the paper. However, she arrives home one day to find an unlikely applicant on her doorstep: thirteen-year-old Shirley Madison. Though Cranry would have preferred an older candidate she decides to give Shirley a chance. This manga is a slice of life, showing the day-by-day interactions of a maid and her employer. Please note this manga is in French, also as a manga it is read from back to front and right to left.

The book is in good condition and includes its dust jacket. The dust jacket has some minor signs of wear on the edges but is otherwise in good condition, while the book cover is in a similar condition (only with some added wear at the bottom of the spine). Internally, the book is in very good condition, with only a single word written in pen on the very last page. Otherwise the pages are clean with no tears and with strong binding.
