Lovereading view...

An hilarious and raunchy modern-day boarding school with some very modern day girls in it who have nothing to do with school on their minds. Jinx and her friend Liberty are gang leaders: behaving badly is their motto. When new girl Stella arrives, things get seriously out of hand.

Synopsis

High Jinx by Sara Lawrence

Jinx Slater is delighted to have reached the giddy heights of the lower sixth at Stagmount, England's most exclusive school for girls. Her ground-floor window affords her an excellent view of Brighton's bright lights, and Jinx is a girl with escape on her mind and a miniature screw driver kit in her tuckbox.

Reviews

'High Jinx is a contemporary take on Blyton. Heroine Jinx has a great time in the Lower Sixth at Stagemount, despite horrible teacher Mrs Gunn, until her group of friends is disrupted by the arrival of a suspicious-seeming new girl.' The Bookseller
