Very nostalgic to be reading a school story again. Takes me back to my childhood - which, obviously, was not in the thirties!
It was interesting to see what the girls of the time considered important. They were obsessed with seeming modern as opposed to old-fashioned - a strange thing, in my eyes. I also have to say that this must be the only school story that I've read where nobody seems to go to lessons - they play hockey, they mooch around, but actual schoolwork is never mentioned.

Journal Entry 5 by MyopicMeringue at Swindon, Wiltshire United Kingdom on Sunday, October 3, 2010
I picked this book up at the Unconvention in Swindon, at Jury's Inn Hotel. It appealed to me, because I used to read such books as a kid, and I thought it would be interesting to read one from an adult's perspective. I read half of it on the train home today, and found it quite fascinating to observe the values of the characters, and also the odd mix of 'stiff upper lip' culture and sentimentality.
