Althea joins the Chalet School (by Elinor M Brent-Dyer)

Sometimes I like to re-read my teenage favourites, the Chalet School series by Elinor M Brent-Dyer. Of course they're a bit samey; some are much better than others.

'Althea joins the Chalet School' is one of the rather run-of-the-mill stories, featuring (unsurprisingly) Althea. She is sent to the school because her parents are going abroad. It's pleasant enough light reading, mainly about Althea settling in and making friends.

Not particularly recommended unless you're a fan of the series; the hardback is better than the abridged Armada paperback.
