At the beginning I was feeling ornery at the frequent use of the word sensible as an adjective to describe a few of the girls. While this story (the second in a series of six books) is rather formulaic, I was pleasantly surprised by its psychological mindedness, and I must say I most enjoyed the girls when they were behaving somewhat badly rather than being perfect. It took me a little while to become engaged with this one but I ended up staying up until the early hours of the morning to finish it, and I did come close to tears with emotion toward the end. I’m looking forward to the other four books in this series. While this isn’t the boarding school of my childhood dreams, I do have fun reading these; I’m sure I’d have been ahuge fan if I’d read them when I was 9 or 10 or 11.
