It may be the result of me binging on a lot of Angela Brazil novels at the moment, but Loyal To The School genuinely struck me as a bit poor. Lesbia Ferrars' guardian and his family decide to emigrate to Canada and Lesbia is expected to join them. Acting on the spur of the moment, Lesbia runs away from the ship and heads back to the family of her nearest schoolfriend - convinced by her friend that they will put her up. It turns out that this is far from the truth, and it's an awkward year in pro ...more

Kingfield High School student Lesbia Ferrars lives with her stepfather and his family. When her family emigrates, Lesbia runs away to stay with a friend, who has misled her into thinking she could live with them. She ends up living with distant relatives who don't really want her, either. Despite her troubles, she manages to have a good year at school, developing her skills in art. In the end she makes friends with her stepbrother Paul and his wife, and through a bit of extraordinary luck she is ...more

Another really enjoyable Brazil book! I liked Lesbia, and her impulsive character. Her odd decisions through the book made me like her more; if she'd done what everyone thought she would do, and in fact what the reader thinks she would do, then the book would not have been half as good. Read on my kindle, purchased for free. Highly recommended school girl story.

A mediocre girls-school book that I downloaded from Project Gutenberg at random. On the plus side, the main character's name is "Lesbia", which I find to be excellent.

She was educated at the Turrets - a small private school in Wallasey - and then, when the Brazils were living in Manchester, at the preparatory department of the Manchester High School, and (as a boarder) at Ellerslie, an exclusiv ...more
