This is about Rosamund Atherton and her experiences as head girl at St Peter's High school and all the problems that she experiences. It is a great book, moving in parts and funny in others. It really is EBD at her best.

Format: Paperback
Book two of the La Rochelle series, this book links in through various means with EBD's most famous series, the acclaimed Chalet School series. Alike to Elsie Oxenham, Dorita Fairlie Bruce and various other famous school story authors, EBD has her own fan club - 2 in fact - containing members from all over the world. It is one of those fan clubs that have published this fantastic edition of A Head Girl's Difficulties previously available only in much older and very valuable editions. It is unabridged, very rare for an EBD pb, and has already practically sold out, just a few copies still available from book dealers. The La Rochelle series are really a necessity for Chalet fans, and are great fun to read as every five minutes you're thinking, hey, she's going to marry him, she's the mother of Blossom, etc, as you gradually realise the extent of the links with the CS. The introduction at the beginning of the book, written by the co-producers of the Friends of The Chalet School fan club, is very helpful in getting your bearings with the book, particularly as the 7 books are not all about the same people or set in the same place. My personal favourite is the Maids of La Rochelle, but they are all fantastic and whether you are a long time EBD collector or just a mild school story fan, this is for you. Do NOT start with Maids, start on this, or even better the first book in the series, Gerry Goes To School. Amazon also sell a variety of Chalet books - buy them. They're fantastic, although abridged. This book is definately worth the five stars that I have given it - and if I could have, I would have given it 6.

I felt that after I had read Gerry goes to school and read read the reviews of this book that I must read it. I am glad that I bought it , it was a brilliant read. I was not surprised when I read about a childs death as in the first book we found that he was a sickly child. The book covered a lot of issues , it made me laugh and cry and I did enjoy it.I am now going to see if I can get the other La Rochelle books and am looking forward to reading them.

This book was in excellent condition. I received it promptly. Since I am a fan of Elinor Brent Dyer's books, I enjoyed adding it to my collection. I have a complete set of the Chalet school books, and now have 4 of the La Rochelle series. I look forward to adding the other 7 titles to my collection at a later date.
