This book is about a boarding school in England a long time ago, and about the lives of the girls there. I read this when I was younger, and I just wanted to reread it, so I did. The thing I really like about this book is that it makes me want to go to a boarding school in England. Things are much different than they are here, and school seems a lot more interesting and exciting there than it is here. The other thing I liked about the book is that it makes you really feel like you go to the same ...more

Ten Second Synopsis:
A new year means a new head girl, while some new students rock the boat vying for Alison's friendship. Can the girls overcome their differences long enough to put on a spectacular play for the end of term?

Sounds like a typical Enid Blyton adventure, right? Well, my friend, I thought so too. But herein lies the confusion. This title is, in fact, NOT part of the original series, but an add-on penned by Pamela Cox as a way to flesh out the original Blyton series.


So was I

Awesome children's book...
One of my best friend Sanil Khanna gave me to read it...I was quite surprised that he was reading a children's book at the age of 23 but when I started to read it...I finished it in just a day!!!
Girls have always been the way they are at any age!

Jealously and companionship are two elements of any friendship a girl has. Interesting story.

Even though this isn't actually by Enid Blyton I really enjoyed it. It might even be one of my favourites from the series! Great story with some new characters along the way.

Well - it is reasonably like the usual St. Clares story though of course no one can really recreate the feel. This book really tries hard to remain consistent with the rest of the series. But somehow one can clearly feel that Pamela Cox is from a different age. She can not get into Enid Blyton's shoes and think from the age when Enid Blyton used to live. So sometimes one finds a dis synchrony - an ideas from one age introduced in a different age.

I promised myself I wouldn't be that fan. Someone writing again for St. Clare's is awesome, no matter the quality. I would give Pamela Cox a chance.

But she blew it: she dropped everything that made St. Clares St. Clares, including throwing in Day students, Carlotta being allowed out of the school to go horse riding, changing people's characters, the wrong girls chosen as Head Girls, the typical language, and even a boy.

I was still trying to give them a chance, but it became harder and harder, as

This book has got to be my favourite so far. Simply because it is a gripping book. I couldn't put it down! The 2 new girls Libby and Fern - cousins are complete opposites. Libby is kind, friendly and warm - hearted, whereas Fern is a spiteful person. I severly dislike Fern because she turns against Carlotta and Rachel. Rachel is a new girl too! Fern wrecks the costumes for the third formers play, blames Carlotta on it and Carlotta gets knocked unconcious because of Fern. Fern and Libby both leav ...more

I really loved this book because it is funny, with excitement and drama. This book is about all the third-form girls at St. Clare's, and how they get through plays, tricks, flu, injuries, and horrible girls, and all the fun that comes with it. I highly recommend this book to those who have read the beginning of the series.
وای که من چقدررررررر دلم برای این مدارس شبانه روزی تنگ شده بود...
جشن های شبانه٫ کلک های بوبی و جانت و دوریس در کلاس مادموازل! :))
تازه واردها! قهر و آشتی ها! آدمای دوست داشتنی :)
همه اش خوب بود خیلی خیلی!!
حتی نمیدونم این چندمین باری بود که میخوندمش! فقط میتونم بگم خـــــیـــــلــــی لذت بردم! :]

This is a great book.
The missing two stars are due to it not fitting in with the rest of the series so well.The biggest issue I had were the two day girls in the original series there is never a mention of day girls also I always had the feeling it wouldn't fit into the concept of the school.

Out of all of the St. Clare's books, I thought that this one gave the most insight on the boarding school. The change in authors was executed well and I had found myself excited for the rest of the books.
Not a bad book, though lacks the charm of the original series. Still, an interesting fill-in of one of the missing years.
