Gay from China at The Chalet School

£14.99

Product description

Gay from China at The Chalet School is the eighteenth book in the very famous and loved Chalet School series

Gay Lambert is an impetuous, warm-hearted senior at the Chalet School who quickly takes sad shy Jacynth Hardy under her wing. But the summer term proves to be a difficult one for Gay and her friends when a dreadful accident causes a new headmistress to be appointed.

Authoritarian Miss Bubb has very different views on how a school should be run and soon there is wide discontent. When Gay takes matters into her own hands, it's clear something must be done.

This book will be loved by those returning to the Chalet School and those who are not yet fully familiar to the series. The book is in very good condition with firm boards spine and pages. The book does not have a dust cover. It is a 1955 reprint of the original.
