Thumbs down as far as I am concerned to Hippo and to Jenny and her syndicate. This is the first in a promised series. Make space among the Enid Blytons. Antonia Forests. Ann Digbys etc. The theme is very familiar. Elder sister is Headgirl, younger Jenny is a new girl. Ariel is quite determined to be expelled. Miss Strickland is oh, so firm but oh. so nice! Girl testes liked it. 'Easy to pick up and put down', said one'. There is really not much to say except that it is predictable, obvious, a mish-mash of much that has come before. I find it difficult to believe that many girls of today dream of boarding school, being ill in the 'san', climbing daring heights from classroom windows. The publishers obviously know otherwise.
