Quote of the Day

Kay, Nicky and Lynette stared at the new girls; and the new girls stared rather warily back.
It was a pity, Kay thought, that the Fullerton twins had been moved to make way for this pair, for last term they had all been very cosy together, with no real quarrels or fights not even towards the end of the term, when everybody was sick of the sight of everybody else and when there were usually a few arguments and coolnesses to put it mildly. Still, there it was, the twins had been moved, and on the whole this couple didn't seem too bad except that one of them seemed to be a bit sulky. "Which is which?" she asked. "Which is Judy Redfern and which is Gail Lester?"
