A Future Chalet School Girl

(Book 47 in the Chalet School series)
A novel by

Melanie Lucas is upset at having to leave her school and go and live in Switzerland with her Aunt and Uncle. Illness prevents her from finishing the term, and she arrives in Geneva worn out. However, matters look up when her Aunt meets Jo Maynard, better known to Melanie as Josephine M. Bettany, one of her favourite authors. Jo invites Melanie to spend the rest of the holidays with the Maynard family in the Tiernsee. Melanie is shy with the large family at first, but a number of incidents make her feel more at home. An accident occurs whilst they are in the new minibus, but everyone escapes without injury. At the Tiernsee, Jo meets a very old friend who will ultimately give Melanie some exciting news. The three Richardsons', the Maynards' wards, arrive, but this causes some problems for Ruey and Melanie. Melanie's resentment and subsequent disobedience results in a bad experience for her and Len. Several expeditions take place, including a picnic to the Zillerthal. Ruey talks to Melanie and reveals something that brings the feud between them to an end. The book ends with exciting news for both Felicity and Melanie, and the news that she will attend the Chalet School next term.
