This is a very short book - Rosalie Way, a new girl, gets a crush on Tom Gay (star of Tom Tackles the Chalet School, a book I couldn't get hold of). I found it rather funny that Rosalie "strongly admires" (as the book puts it) the most butch member of the school. Anyway, Tom doesn't hold with that sort of sentimental girlish rubbish, although it's obvious that she quite likes Rosalie, and does her best to tone down her brusqueness when dealing with her. After running away and having a big old cry after a fight with Tom, Rosalie is rescued by Tom and has to cut her long hair short as it gets stuck. Another symbolic gesture to indicate that she's becoming a proper Chalet School girl - no sentimentality or silly long curls allowed here! (Although that all changes once you hit 17, and have to start growing your hair in order to put it up.)
