Description: Maggie loves teaching English at beautiful Downey House but she is less keen on planning her wedding to dependable Stan. Instead, she’s working on ignoring her crush on David McDonald, who teaches English at the local boys’ school.
Just as Simone and Fliss have become friends, Zelda arrives to upset everything. Zelda is loud, glamorously American, and she’s full of ways to improve life at boring school. Soon, quiet, mousy Simone is undergoing a makeover. And Fliss is about to jeopardise everything to impress a boy.
In a new year at school, the girls of Downey House will be breaking all the rules – and not all of them will escape unscathed.
I was a little worried about whether I was going to like this book after reading the first book of the series the other day. I enjoyed this much more as the characters developed a lot further and it was easier to get into. I liked that Jenny tries to bring in important issues for teenagers such as anorexia and underage drinking, but I don’t think they were explored as thoroughly as they could have been. Saying this, they are only short books so it was enough for the length that it is. I also liked hearing about Maggie’s love life and her various dilemma’s. It’s still always interesting to realise that teachers are only people too!
