Are you ready for some real High Jinx? This fast-paced novel is a 21st-century boarding school adventure, packed with friendships, rivalries and fashionable handbags.
Jinx Slater is a student at Stagmount, England's most exclusive boarding school for girls. Her ground-floor window affords her an excellent view of the bright lights and nightclubs of downtown Brighton, and Jinx is a girl with escape on her mind.
Her best friend and partner in crime, Liberty Latiffe is not at all worried about being caught out by her very strict Muslim father. Nor are the rest of the girls in their dorm. Until, that is, Stella Fox - Stagmount's newest new girl - arrives on the scene, determined to make her mark.
Jinx Slater is a true heroine for the 21st century girl, a character who is resourceful and witty and popular with her fellow students and her teachers.
Packed with friendship, rivalries and designer handbags, High Jinx will be adored by girls aged 14 and up.
