School for Stupid Chits would have been a better title. With the exception of Liz Carlyle's story, the others all featured rather brainless heroines and unreal plots. Carlyle stands out for her character development and plot that, while unlikely, is not entirely improbable or anachronistic for the period. Though this was written as a prequel of sorts to Carlyle's later Neville series, I certainly appreciated it more having read those books earlier; I think someone who hadn't would have found the secondary charaters' actions rather confusing.
So, 2 stars for the 3 stories, and 3 for Carlyle.
