Description

Move over Matilda and Madeline, there's a charming miniature heroine ready to make her mark! Her name is Alice-Miranda--and she's full of spunk!

Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennigton-Jones can't wait to start boarding school. When she arrives at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies, the adventure begins . . . only not quite as Alice-Miranda expects. The minute she sets foot on the school's manicured grounds, she senses that something is wrong: Miss Grimm, the headmistress, is nowhere to be seen, the gardens have no flowers, and a mysterious stranger seems to be hiding out on the premises.

But that's not all. Some girls are mean and spoiled, like Alethea Goldsworthy. Can Alice-Miranda defeat Alethea in one of three difficult tests she must pass to remain at school? Will she discover Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale's big secret—and make things right? Well, if anyone can, it's spunky Alice-Miranda!

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 13, 2011 – Australian author Harvey launches a promising series that stars fearless Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones. At seven-and-one-quarter years old she is ready for adventure and eager to take on her first year at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies, an elite boarding school that is part of her family’s history. Ever vigilant, as soon as Alice-Miranda arrives at the academy, her instincts kick in: “There was not a thing out of place. But from the moment Alice-Miranda entered the grounds she had a strange feeling that something was missing—and she was usually right about her strange feelings.” But when Alice-Miranda approaches the school’s headmistress, Miss Grimm, to discuss the problems she perceives at the school (the head prefect is difficult, the cook badly needs a vacation, and the gardener just wants to be allowed to plant flowers), Miss Grimm not only refuses to hear her, but also seems resigned to making Alice-Miranda’s first year as difficult as possible. Alice-Miranda’s precociousness can sometimes be cloying, but her effervescent personality lends itself well to the novel’s hyperbolic atmosphere, and her optimism is contagious. Ages 7–10.
