The Chalet School and Rosalie (by Elinor M Brent-Dyer)


Continuing my foray into re-reading Elinor M Brent-Dyer's many books about the Chalet School...

Rosalie is a very shy and feminine girl, who arrives at the Chalet School feeling rather uncertain. Tom - of all people - is asked to look after her. Tom is very boyish, and about as different from Rosalie as is possible. They're an unlikely contrast, but somehow make friends, and Rosalie soon starts to idolise Tom.

In some senses it's a fairly ordinary run-of-the-mill school story, pleasant enough but with nothing to capture my interest.
