I read this in school; I must have been about 11 but it was an old book.

The girls in this book were called Roma and Avril. Avril was a new girl. They were friends but I think there may have been a disagreement first. Or possibly with another girl. It had red boards IIRC.

Anyone know it?

I'm going to delete the post with the dodgy link in it, in case anyone clicks on it by accident. Just in case you wondered where it was!

Don't remember that one - is it an Angela Brazil?

(now imagining a St Trinian's style gambling den in the staff room of one of her more staid schools)

I got excited to see the revival of this thread thinking it had been identified!

I don't think it was a Brazil because it was less sentimental/more modern-feeling. Possibly a 1950s vibe from it. Thanks though!

I don't remember much, just the girls' names.

I vaguely remember a book I had about a girl called Avril, but that's all I can remember. I think she was French though.
