GGBP first published this title in 2006, and we are delighted to be re-publishing it now.
The New Mistress at the Chalet School tells the story of Kathie Ferrars’ first term. Elinor Brent-Dyer is always good when she is ‘in the Staff Room’ and this is a really brilliant story from that perspective. Kathie brushes up against Mary-Lou, since she has been told by her aunt not to be too familiar, and it takes an almost-accident for her to realise what her relationships with the seniors should be. She also learns to deal with those members of Inter V who still have a Middles outlook on life – particularly Margot Maynard and Heather Clayton. And then there is the question of Yseult Pertwee.
The Armada paperback had major cuts.
Adrianne Fitzpatrick will be writing a short story for this new edition, ‘Justice and Mercy’.
