Reviews

"These ten stories are engaging and funny, written in brisk, uncomplicated prose that will appeal to any reader"
Guardian||"The writing is elegant and crisp throughout. Heartstrings are pulled with no trace of sentimentality. I think readers of this book, whether they go to boarding school or not, will love it for the light it sheds on an experience which can be painful for many children"
