||"Cosette is very determined to be free, and Jean Valjean does everything he can to help her." Justine, 12
'Send the brat home? Oh no we won't! Her mother must have met some rich man - we can make a load of money out of this.'
It seems that poor Cosette will never escape from the wicked Monsieur and Madame Thénardier. She is only eight years old, but they force her to work hard every day.
Jean Valjean has promised her mother that he will rescue the little girl - but Inspector Javert is on his trail. Will the fierce Inspector arrest Jean Valjean? If he does, will Cosette ever be set free?
Cosette is not the only person who desperately needs help. When Marius is badly wounded, will even Jean Valjean's courage and determination be enough to save the brave young student?
