There are several simple victories against the system, the system being the headmistress and the new owners but also there’s a sweet story of developing love, acceptance of change and determination to succeed.  

About the Author….in her own words

"I started writing children’s books when I was a child (and was writing plain “books” as far as I knew) and have been writing ever since! I live in the Bay Area where I’m still writing but also working out in the “real world” where I steal ideas for my stories."

Where do you get your inspirations for your characters and storylines in your books?

"I take inspiration from the world around me. The Jane Austen Academy series of books is obviously inspired by Jane Austen’s characters as reimagined as teenagers in a boarding school, but a lot of little details are taken from my own friends and family. There’s bits of a truth or dare scene that is more or less co-opted from an actual truth or dare game I played when I was a teenager."

What were your favourite books from your childhood?

"I obsessively read Roald Dahl and Judy Blume – I mean, like, every week. But I also read a lot of Stephen King even though he kept scaring the crap out of me and I’d get too scared to sleep. I don’t learn from my mistakes, is what I’m saying."

What are the best and worst thing about being a writer?

"I don’t really buy into the best versus worst thing, but I’ll say that the intensity of getting into a story can be both the best and worst part. Nothing is better than getting sucked into your own story and feeling like your characters are taking you on a journey – but it also means you’re living in your own head for a long time and life is going on without you. Sometimes I have to miss a party or skip a night out with friends to write and I hate missing out on things."
