Book description
The scholarship girl, Monica Baxter, has problems at Greystones School which are caused by her own attitude. She’s been badly advised that people like her should have no time for games but must work hard all the time in order to gain more scholarships. So, although she enjoys games and likes the games captain, Monica calmly informs her that she won’t be doing games. She’s quite unfazed by her new surroundings and simply refuses to conform or to see why she should do as the prefects tell her. Everything changes when she meets the fairy-like Francesca and the two become inseparable. Francesca's academic Cambridge family believes in a healthy balance between work and play. Monica learns to enjoy life, especially after a stay with the family and becomes a much happier and nicer person as a result. She and Francesca progress up the school, excelling at both work and games until they are both ready for Cambridge.
