really liked it
bookshelves: childrens, boarding-school, 1900s-10s

Quite a fun little story, though not my favourite Angela Brazil. The first person narration was very surprising, and I never quite grew used to it! It sounded very dry and Philippa's voice was far too grown up - which made sense when the end showed her to be in her 20s and looking back on her early teenage years.

Lots of high jinks with a horrid rival, and a nice dose of adventure to have them kiss and make up (lol, literally!) thanks to a mad bull... Also, this was one of the few boarding school stories where the holiday at home chapter was just as good as the in school ones - Cathy's brothers were loads of fun!
