Review: The book was great. The plot was interesting and the characters were entertaining.


The book is about a seven year old girl who starts her first day at boarding school. There she meets Millicent, a sweet girl who becomes her friend, the school’s biggest tantrum thrower Jacinta and Alethea, the biggest snob ever. There is also the mystery of the school’s headmistress, Miss Grimm, who hasn’t been seen in 10 years. Alice-Miranda has many adventures such as going to a wilderness camp and taking part in a sailing race.
