Enjoyable story about two English schoolgirls. I had previously read the sequel, so had some idea of what was going to happen. And for some reason, the American edition of the sequel changed the girls' names from Mavis and Merle to Mary and Marjorie!

I loved reading about Mavis and Merle, as well as Bevis' final happy ending. I guessed early on the plot twist, but it was still fun to read it through to the end. I loved the whole opal plot lines too, and the eventual outcome there. I still have some more of Angela Brazil's books to read, so I'll bet I'll enjoy those too!

A cute, enjoyable, if not predictable book. A good read between my more...challenging reads.
