Jack Lambert arrives at the CS and is shown the ropes by her dormitory prefect, Len Maynard. Always full of questions, Jack considers Len is the best person to answer them, and Len keeps an eye on her. Jack gets into many scrapes, and when one joke goes horribly wrong, Jack is in real trouble, but Len comes to the rescue. Len shows her leadership in other ways too – when the school heating system breaks down and when her triplet sister Margot brings her problems.
