It's 1910, and thirteen-year-old Patty Hirst has just been offered the opportunity of a lifetime. Her wealthy uncle will pay for her to join her cousin Ruby at the exclusive Morton Priory College, if Patty will undertake to be a loyal companion to his daughter. Unfortunately, Ruby seems to loathe Patty and rebuffs her every attempt to fulfil her obligations. As Ruby treats her with increasing hostility, Patty is more determined than ever to keep her promise to her uncle, earning herself the reputation as the nicest girl in the school due to her patience and kindness towards someone so nasty.

Can Patty keep up the pretence? Or will she snap?

First written by Angela Brazil and published more than a hundred years ago, this edition has been revitalised for a new generation of young readers by editor Elle Carter Neal.

Review quote

"If you are looking for youth literature to read that is not objectionable in any way and harks back to classics such as The Railway Children, Little Women and Anne of Green Gables, you'll love this book." Joanna D., Amazon review

"Brazil wrote with verve and enthusiasm and I recommend her books to fans of Elinor M Brent-Dyer's Chalet School series." E.L. Dollard, Amazon review

"Angela Brazil was the Enid Blyton or Jacqueline Wilson of her day, and this was one of her best-known books. It is still worth reading." Annalivia, Amazon review

"A lovely gentle read for any girls' school story fan to while away an hour or two." Reading Girl, Amazon review
