Tom Tackles the Chalet School (by Elinor M Brent-Dyer)

'Tom Tackles the Chalet School' is one of the extremely long series by Elinor M Brent-Dyer for children, about a girls' school in the Austrian Tyrol.

Tom, a boyish girl raised by her father on maths and classics, arrives at the Chalet School believing that most girls are sneaky and dishonourable. As she settles down, she has to revise some of her ideas.

Not a bad book though rather obviously dated; on the other hand, there's nothing very exciting or out of the ordinary.
