Harriet has been ill, and is ordered by her doctor to take up ice-skating. She meets and befriends Lalla, trained from babyhood for stardom, and they make friends. Harriet is poor and Lalla rich, but gradually Harriet realises the benefits to her loving family. A nice story, although Harriet's brothers seem a bit artificial and Lalla, at times, rather too spoiled to be real.
Still, a good plot in gentle Streatfeild style, and eminently re-readable, although the ending is - typical for this author - rather abrupt.

Loved reading this when I was a child and it's still a charming story of it's time which my skating mad 9 year old is now reading to me and stretching her vocabulary. Glad the illustrations are still the same and enjoying sharing this with my daughter.
