All her life Robin had wanted to be in the Sixth Form at Rothmere, but ...
"Must Father be transferred this year? Won't they keep him on till next? Think of being a new girl in the Sixth!"
After an eventful journey to their new home, Robin joins the Sixth at St. Quentin's. With too many girls and not enough desks in the regular form room, Robin and six other girls are exiled to the division room, and before long tensions between the Small Sixth and the Big Sixth escalate to outright war.
Isobel, Magda, G.G. and Todger, along with painting and decorating, disappearing birds' eggs, a museum and a pet show, all play a part in helping Robin adjust to her new life in the Small Sixth Form.
