"Tom Gay intrigues the whole Chalet School. There were other new girls,
of course, but none like her."|
Educated by her father until the age of twelve, Tom is taught to behave like a "gentleman" at all times. Convinced that girls "do silly things" she finds it hard to settle down in the almost exclusively female atmosphere of the Chalet School. But as the term progresses and Tom finds herself helping to rescue an injured pupil from snow-covered mountains, she begins to change her mind! - 1987 Armada
