REVIEW – Alice-Miranda at School by Jacqueline Harvey

Alice Miranda at SchoolThis book is about Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones and when she starts at a boarding school where the headmistress, Miss Grimm hasn’t been seen for 10 years. The prize-winning flowers are gone. And someone is camping in the greenhouse. Can one small girl change a very big school?

Alice-Miranda joins the Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies, but the ‘unseen’ headmistress doesn’t like her, and sets her a series of impossible challenges. Plus there are mysterious goings on all the time, like disappearing cake!

Alice-Miranda is my favourite character. She’s nice but gets into trouble even though she doesn’t mean to.

This is the first in the series and I want to read more of these. This is the cheeriest book I’ve read in ages even though it’s emotional. I give this book 5 out of 5 and think it is for ages 7+.
