Having just read Gillian Of for the first time, I have to say how much I enjoyed it. It fits so nicely into the series and has just the right amount of incidents and everyday happenings. I particularly enjoyed the development of Joyce and the strain between her and Miss Norman; perfectly believable and understandable in the circumstances. The play was also fresh and yet very in keeping with those before and after.

What does everyone else think?

Agree with Peg's comments - a very enjoyable book. The relationship between Joyce and Miss Norman is very realistic - both embarrassed for very different reasons - and with no real solution. I was never convinced that Jack and Jane could become close friends after the bullying episodes - this storyline is much more believable.

Gillian has always been a favourite of mine and she is so straightforward and caring. The scene where she and Joyce said farewell to their mother was very touching - I admit I had a tear in my eye.

Only in CSland could a parent be prepared to pay another year of school fees at the drop of a hat for his daughter to be Head Girl! I know Hilary is only just seventeen and can "afford to spend another year at School" - lucky her father can too!
