"The New Girl at St. Chad's" is a 1912 fictional story by English writer Angela Brazil. Another charming and entertaining school girls' tale by one of the creators of the genre, this is a volume that would be perfect young girls at boarding school and fans of vintage girls' literature. Angela Brazil (1868 - 1947) was an English author most famous for being one of the first writers of "modern schoolgirls' stories". Her stories were presented from the characters' point of view and were written primarily as entertainment rather than moral instruction. During the first half of the 20th century, Brazil published nearly 50 such books, with the vast majority being set in English boarding schools. Brazil's work had a significant influence on changing the nature of fiction for girls. Her charters were chiefly young females, active, independent, and aware. Brazil's books were often considered to be immoral and deviant, leading to their being burned or banned by many Headteachers in girls schools across Britain. Other notable works by this author include: "The School in the Forest" (1944), "Three Terms at Uplands" (1945), "The School on the Loch" (1946). Contents include: "Honor's Home", "The Wearing of the Green", "Janie's Charge", "A Riding Lesson", "The Lower Third", "St. Chad's Celebrates an Occasion", "Honor Finds Favour", "A Relapse", "St. Kolgan's Abbey", "Miss Maitland's Window", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
