Nicky was a schoolgirl who, as she confessed to her diary, hated being only "middling". She tried tennis, but was only fairly good; she tried to swim at the deep end and was nearly drowned. But she helped Philippa to "find herself" and circumvented some of the tricks of the interfering Crystal, but these achievements were not enough. She was a thorough sport, at any rate, and the reader will be delighted by the success which at last rewarded a very jolly heroine.
