Arrietty Clock is like any ordinary 14-year-old girl — she lives with her parents, helps out with chores and loves to explore — except she’s four inches tall. Her family is known as ”borrowers”: small people who live within the crevices of a family home, appropriating minute items like thread or sugar cubes. When Arrietty is abruptly discovered by the human boy who lives in the home, her family’s quiet existence is threatened.
