- It is a big challenge that the Chalet School has to meet. For the best part of the Christmas term it is deprived of its Head Mistress. However, she has a good substitute and the staff and prefects all back her up. Things are made no easier by the arrival at the school of two girls each of whom is a problem though each in a different way. Evelyn Ross learns to put other people's needs and wishes before her own during the first half-term; but it takes practically the whole of the term for Jocelyn Marvell to decide that after all she means to become a real Chalet girl. Before that happens she gets into endless trouble and keeps the school on its toes, wondering what she will do next. Still, the challenge comes for her too in the end, helped on by that old favourite Mary-Lou Trelawney, who bobs up just when Jocelyn has got herself into a really sticky mess, and comes to the rescue in her own inimitable way.
