I remember being really enthralled by this story about a boarding school in Canada, lots of apple eating and friends and crushes and the stuff of middle school drama - so of course I loved it. I remembered the title a year ago and thought it might be fun to reread some of the books I loved - and see if they were actually any good or whether I just read dreck in my youth ... this book on AbeBooks was a bloody fortune - so now it is on my extensive list to hopefully locate someday at a used book s

I recommend this if you particularly like books about: boarding schools, Canada, or kids putting on a play. Otherwise this story about a small, progressive '60s boarding school is nice but forgettable. (The title sounds like it would be one of those charming pioneer/farm books by someone like Miriam Mason, but it's not at all like that.)
I must have read "Apples Every Day" four times when I was in elementary school and,every time, I felt like I was on a great escape away from home with good friends.

An odd time capsule of a book, worth more for the period details than any literary qualities. My favorite part was the betrayal of the much-loved teacher, and I really wanted to read more of her expose, although I was very disappointed at the ultimate reason for that betrayal.

A fairly straightforward and realistic story about a girl at a progressive Canadian boarding school similar to Summerhill. Was glad to see a school like this portrayed in a sympathetic (though not totally utopian) manner.
Lovely old fashioned story with poignant intimate details. Recently found my old copy and re read it with zest.
this was one of my favourite books as a young teenager, even after I spent a year in a similar boarding school (in England rather than Canada), and knew first-hand how living so closely together with other students AND teachers can bruise and illuminate. It never occured to me until this minute, when I saw that someone else had read the book,that the author might have written something else. Now on a treasure hunt...
