The second book in Enid Blyton's wonderful Malory Towers series, about life at a girls' boarding school in Cornwall.
Darrell and her friends are how settled at Malory Towers, and looking forward to their second year.
However, conflict arises when Darrell's best friend Sally is made head girl instead of Alicia, who was very much expecting this honour!
Darrel feels the pull between Sally, and the engaging but manipulative Alicia. Alicia holds the thrall of being the prankster, and the one Darrell had hoped to have as a best friend...
With all kinds of hilarities and upsets going on around them, the characters Darrell, Sally, Mary-Lou, Alicia and Gwen give us another delightful story - fun for girls of any school age!
This will be reread again and again!
