Spine and corners bumped.
The first day of a new school is not generally one of great joy to any girl or boy, and our little heroine Pippa, being a somewhat stubborn and self-willed maiden, made the task of winning her way amongst the other girls at the Priory school one of more than ordinary difficulty. Otherwise she was quite a lovable little girl, but something always seemed to go just wrong. First she had a quarrel or two, then she became implicated in a serious loss of money. Of course, she was quite innocent, but in her anxiety to clear herself and others, she got into even deeper trouble. But although Pippa had more than her share of troubles, she had a great and unexpected joy in the end.
