I found this book very interesting with a small but polite young girl. Interesting and gripping the book had a mystery all the eay through with mean and kind haerted charecters. ( )

Alice-Miranda at School is about a seven and one quarter years old who decides she is ready to go to boarding school. Her parents doesn't want her to go but at the end they decide it's alright. She arrives a day before the term starts as the dates are mixed up. She decides to stay at the school but she starts to have a strange feeling. Why does the headmistress come out of her study? Why are they no flowers? And why is the staff not very cheerful? Along the way she makes new friends, meets the school bully and complete the three tasks the headmistress have given Alice-Miranda. I think that people should read this book because it is very interesting and because it is fascinating! I immediately loved this seven year old girl with the chocolate curls and I'm sure you will too!!!!

It wouldn't be right at all to review my own book, so instead I have included a review from Australia.

Published March 12 2010 on Read Plus http://www.readplus.com.au/blog_detail.php?id=992

Random House Australia, 2010. ISBN 9781741664515.
(Ages 8 and up) Highly recommended. Alice-Miranda Highton-Kennington-Jones decides, at the age of seven and one-quarter years, that it's time to go to boarding school. Her doting parents know there is no point trying to stop her, so tearfully drop her off at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies. Alice-Miranda, who one would call precocious were she not so likeable, immediately makes her mark on the school to the horror of the mysterious headmistress Miss Grimm, whom nobody has laid eyes on for ten years. Miss Grimm sets a series of seemingly impossible challenges for Alice-Miranda to face if she is to be allowed to remain at the school. With determination and endless optimism, Alice-Miranda sets out to prove she is just the sort of student Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale needs. Full of humour and with very likeable characters, this book sets a benchmark for a fantastic new series about this entertaining young lady.

It was a great book about giving people chances no matter what people say about you behind your back. And giving a helping hand to people who need it but are pushing away. ( )

Book description
Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennigton-Jones can't wait to start boarding school. When she arrives at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies, the adventure begins . . . only not quite as Alice-Miranda expects. The minute she sets foot on the school's manicured grounds, she senses that something is wrong: Miss Grimm, the headmistress, is nowhere to be seen, the gardens have no flowers, and a mysterious stranger seems to be hiding out on the premises.
