"Awesome and revealing."*Fifteen-year-old Kate Steiner is not sure why she is suddenly boarding at an East Coast school for troubled kids, though there is evidence that her lawyer parents are having marital problems. It is the mid-1970's, and at the progressive school where she has landed, Kate is initiated into a stratified society inhabited by kids who fell through the cracks."We were delinquents, addicts, mental cases, orphans and kids from broken homes."Kate must grapple with moral ambiguities when she discovers that Patrick, her first boyfriend, is also a slip-sliding drug addict. In the loosening of family ties, and faced with an inscrutable headmaster, uncommunicative parents and a doomed first love, Kate makes shadowy passage through her questioning adolescence...finding solace in a 'soul catcher' dangling inside a geodesic dome built by a quirky boy who surprises her with an unexpected friendship.PRAISE FOR KATIA LIEF'S NOVELS"Taut, clean storytelling." -Publishers Weekly"A realistic, believable boarding school, where adolescent angst and the trauma of growing up at a breakneck pace is presented...as the difficult transition it is." -Small Press Magazine*Elizabeth, reader (amazon.com)

“The Third Class at Miss Kaye'” is a classic girls' story by English author Angela Brazil. Much like the majority of Brazil's work, the story is set in a traditional English girls' boarding school and follows the vicissitudes and triumphs of one of its young attendees—in this case, Sylvia. A wonderfully-entertaining and charming tale, “The Third Class at Miss Kaye's” is ideal for young girls and those with an interest in the origins and evolution of “schoolgirls' literature”. Angela Brazil (1868 – 1947) was an English author most famous for being one of the first writers of "modern schoolgirls' stories". Her stories were presented from the characters' point of view and were written primarily as entertainment rather than moral instruction. During the first half of the 20th century, Brazil published nearly 50 such books, with the vast majority being set in English boarding schools. Brazil's work had a significant influence on changing the nature of fiction for girls. Her charters were chiefly young females, active, independent, and aware. Brazil's books were often considered to be immoral and deviant, leading to their being burned or banned by many Headteachers in girls schools across Britain. Other notable works by this author include: “The School in the Forest” (1944), “Three Terms at Uplands” (1945), “The School on the Loch” (1946). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
