"A brilliant boarding school audiobook, stuffed full of unforgettable characters, thrilling adventures and angst...." (Lisa Jewell)
"Funny and addictive...just like Malory Towers for grown-ups." (Sophie Kinsella)

Summary

For the first time, the girls caught sight of the turreted, castle-like building that would be home for the next nine months, the four towers of the main houses nestled in the hills, with the cliffs behind, leading down to the still turquoise sea.
Maggie loves teaching English at beautiful Downey House but she is less keen on planning her wedding to dependable Stan. Instead, she's working on ignoring her crush on David McDonald, who teaches English at the local boys' school.
Just as Simone and Fliss have become friends, Zelda arrives to upset everything. Zelda is loudly, glamorously American, and she's full of ways to improve life at boring school. Soon, quiet, mousy Simone is undergoing a makeover. And Fliss is about to jeopardise everything to impress a boy.
In a new year at school, the girls of Downey House will be breaking all the rules - and not all of them will escape unscathed.

Great Follow Up to "Class"

I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy the narration from a teenagers point of view but in fact it works well. The story features realistic characters and in particular the reader really understands Maggie's position and dilemma.

Not impressed with non ending

Don't like the ending would like a conclusion how many books can Maggie's love life be dragged over!
