Three and a half-ish stars.

School Story Type: Madcap Schoolgirl.

Given a scholarly, vague and forgetful Prefect for the ill-reputed Middle School, the Middle School monitress, Penelope, decides to reform her form with the help of her self-appointed "prefects", her best chums. Given that Penelope is not exactly a model schoolgirl herself--it's beyond me why she's monitress in the first place--her gang's efforts to bully the form into line only cause more chaos.

The plot is predictable enough: ill-a
