One of the best girls' school stories I have ever read, and with the unique distinction of striking a new note, a picture of an English school. A brief introductory note disposes of the general set-up, so that the distinctive features of English school organization need not puzzle the reader. Beyond that, the story speaks for itself -- a first rate unfolding of girls' loves and hates and enthusiasms and petty jealousies and finenesses and sense of loyalty and development of school spirit. The growth of solidarity which shuts out all the world besides, and the effect of that on the girls. The break when school days end. All through the story of Irish Nora in an English school.
