The spring term is always disaster-prone, but this one at Ledenham School surpasses itself. The Headmaster’s invaluable secretary collapses with appendicitis and has to be replaced by Oonagh – ‘Swooner’ to the boys; a young master’s fancy, lightly turning to thoughts of love, causes a major crisis at Governors’ level; the Headmaster’s daughter Alison’s romance is beset by unwelcome public scrutiny and comment.
We meet several of the characters from "Summer Term", decent chaps and the right sort of girls, plus a few outright cads to give added spice. Although a sequel it can be read on its own; we enjoyed this title more than "Summer Term".
; A new book with very faint soil to page edges.; Recommended by Geraldine H. of the DES email discussion group. This title reviewed and recommended by Claire author of 'The Captive Reader'
