The 11th book is Jo's last term at school, and she finds that she and the rest of the quartet are to move into the new chalet that has been built, along with the middle school. To make up for the change (which Jo is cranky about, of course) she and the other prefects have their own private rooms.

They have a new Matron in the new chalet, who tries to institute new rules, and plenty of pranks are played on her. The Matron ends up holding a grudge against Jo, a cardinal sin in the Chalet world.

On a trip to Innsbruck, Jo & Frieda discover a relative of Dr Jem's (and Jem acts like a dick when he gets the news), the Middles start an orchestra (one of the funniest moments in the book) and then Marie has some news which she confides in her friends - awwww. Jo, for once, refrains from her "growing up sucks" tirade.

Vanessa Collier I love your comment about Jem-one of the funniest (& truest) comments I have read in a review!
