September 2008 Debut of the Month.

This is really good fun and full of great characters to make each page a delight to read. As Sophie Kinsella says it’s “like Malory Towers for grown-ups”, it’s just a shame we don’t already have a big back catalogue of Downey House stories to work through.You will just have to be patient and wait for Beaton to write the next one as you will definitely want to find at how the next year turns out, and the next, and the next………

Synopsis

Class by Jane Beaton

It's about love lives . . .

Maggie has been dating Stan for years - safe, comfortable and about as exciting as soggy toast. Can their relationship survive? Especially when Maggie meets David McDonald, her opposite number at the boys boarding school over the hill. Every single girl in the school has a crush on him, but not Maggie . . . yet.

It's about school lives . . .

Two girls. Same form. Simone Kardashian has won a scholarship and is determined to make her parents proud. Fliss Prosser is furious at being so far from home and her friends. As Simone tries desperately to fit in, Fliss tries desperately to get out.

It's about private lives . . .

Veronica Deveral knows how to manage a school. Routine and discipline are fundamental to her role. But Veronica has a secret that could ruin her career.
