Book description
When part of Kirkdale Priory was destroyed by fire, Colonel Maxton lent accomodation for half of the pupils at the Grange nearby. This action was in part prompted by gratitude for the friendship offered to his niece, a cripple, by the older girls.

Lynette, Diana and Tony are appointed prefects at the Grange, much to the annoyance of certain members of the Lower School. This is eventually overcome, however, when some of the juniors are caught by Tony enjoying a midnight feast. In the meantime, Lys Maxton, recovers from her accident and learns how to walk again!
