    Rather spiffing little schoolgirl adventure tale the Fourth Form are so determined to get ONE of the school shields, and think the sports one is in the bag until one of the Fifths just narrowly beats them So they re set to be the only form with no prize unless they can snag the rarely awarded Valour prize They set about trying to perform brave deeds with quite wonderfully disastrous results But of course all s well in the end in a very unexpected way

    Delightful school story about Joan, a daring adventuress who conceives the scheme of winning the rarely awarded Shield for Valour when her form, the Upper Fourth at St Monica s School for Girls, does not bother to compete for any scholarship awards and then narrowly misses winning the Sports Shield, which they had confidently anticipated snagging Her scheme involves each student s deliberately taking an unwonted risk in a brave attempt to win recognition for their form, but all the attempts unexpectedly end in abject failure, until the girls grow desperate SPOILER AHEAD It is Joan herself who nearly loses her life when a last ditch effort to win glory goes wrong, and the problem is Surprise resolved by the girl from whom her classmates least expect bravery in an ending that is nevertheless totally predictable to the reader Adult readers will be amused by the harebrained schemes of the girls and the gentle irony of their confidently condescending kindness towards timid Valerie A very well crafted little story My copy of this novella is the second half of The Madcap of the School.
