A chain of family events, both sad and happy, force Althea Glenyon to
go to boarding-school and she, luckily, chooses the Chalet School.
Jealousy on the part of one of her classmates damps her happiness there,
but there are many compensations for her in the friendship of Len and
her family and the girls of Upper IVB. Exciting adventures afloat and
ashore break into the school routine, involving Althea in some
embarrassing situations. At the end of her first term at the Chalet
School, however, Althea has proved herself and looks like settling in
to become a real Chaletian. - 1969 Chambers|
When Althea Glenyon is forced by family events to go away to school,
she is delighted to learn that it is to the Chalet School that she must
go. But she is unprepared for the jealousy she encounters from one of
her classmates, or for the adventures - both ashore and afloat - which
break into the school routine. Soon, however, Althea learns to cope,
and becomes a true member of the Chalet School! - 1993 Armada|
