First Term at Malory Towers

(14 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Hachette

For an archetypal school story, take the following: a heroine starting her first term at boarding school, wavering between fear and excitement; her classmates - some good, some not so good, some yet to reveal their real personalities; a school in a magical setting; its teachers - loved, mocked, respected or feared.

It's a tried and tested formula that works and we're rooting for Darrell Rivers as she learns to cope with her fiery temper and decide for herself which friends are genuine.

The psychology of the relationships in the North Tower dorm is naïve, but it's incredibly moral and one can see why Malory Towers remains popular. It's a cracking good, easy, read and 'the longer you stay the decenter you get'!
