Jo is just a wee bit insufferable now that she's left school. She gets stuck at the school due to the babies up at Die Rosen (encompassing Madge's children, Dick's children, and Jem's sister's children - argh!) getting measles and then whooping couch and then syphilis... well, not syphilis, but everything else under the sun. And because of Jo's delicate nature, she's not allowed up there until everyone's fully recovered.

So, she putters around the school, feeling useless, trying to write her first book (she writes one crappy book in a week or so, then seems to dash off a publishable one in a similar amount of time), and doing some fill in teaching, because all the mistresses seem to be getting sick as well.

Not the most fascinating of Chalet School books - we spent most of our time with Jo as she is either teaching, tutoring or writing her book. Oh, and there's a Christmas play, in which Jo still plays a starring role - do you think the other girls are getting annoyed that they never get a chance to shine?
