Delightful girls' school story with a plucky but poor heroine with a couple of good chums but also a nasty classmate. Every girls' school story needs a good villainess! Christine Chaundler's books are better written than many school stories, despite the unlikely plot.

Really liked this. It's different from the average in the genre - this school is more luxurious and mostly contains girls who are rich with no need to learn skills for university or work in later life. Interesting introduction added to GGBP edition too.
