Quote of the Day

Susan too found it very disappointing; so far as she could judge, Tessa's tales were all a lot of rot, boarding-school was just as bad as day-school had been - boring to a degree - hours and hours, days and days, weeks and weeks passed without anything exciting happening at all; instead of mistresses with sinister secrets there was nothing but boring old lessons and prep; instead of prefects persecuting girls and making their lives a misery the boot was on the other foot, as she heard that afternoon when Diana came in and, with a gusty sigh, flung herself as usual into the one armchair.

From SUSAN AT SCHOOL, Chapter 5, Miss Johnson's Secret.
