    One thought on “St. Mallory's Forever!”

    1. ST MALLORY’S FOREVER is an English boarding-school mystery. 3 narrators – Helen, Abby, and Xuan – spin the story in a series of blog posts. Ingenious, yeah? It’s definitely a fresh way to write a book!The story opens with Helen anticipating a stuffy year at the posh boarding school, St. Mallory’s, with a bunch of snobby rich girls. Abby, one of the said “snobby rich girls”, is gearing up for another year with her clique. And Xuan (pronounced “shin”), from China, will be boardin [...]

    2. This was a well written book told from the point of view of three girls at a boarding school. What is particularly interesting is that it is told via blog entries that the girls write, which is an idea that works well. The girls themselves sound convincing - not least because two of the writers are teenage girls themselves, one of whom has been to boarding school. And, in addition to all of this, there is a good story at work, regarding a missing teacher, and an obscure piece of music. Overall, [...]

    3. Brilliant Book – shame about the proof-readingA delightful book, set in a girls’ boarding school in the UK. And, unlike another boarding school story we have read, where it was obvious the author had never set foot in one, this one rings true. The fact that one of the authors was actually a pupil at such an establishment may have helped, just a bit. And we know – one of us has worked in a girls’ boarding school, both of us have worked in mixed boarding schools, and both of us have worked [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book a lot.It was written in first person from the alternating viewpoints of about three girls and each of the girls are actually writing blogs. So each chapter is a "blog post".However, as good as this book was I am going to rate it PG-13 for nudity and the way they kept coming back to that. Also, there are some instances of language, but that isn't too bad.Four stars all the same.

    5. St. Mallory's is an all-girl boarding school. Abby, who is 14, is one of the students there. Helen is another girl there and her mother is the music teacher. There's also a Chinese girl named Xuan who is incredible intelligent, speaks various languages and still gets stuck in an ESL class.There's a cultural shock as Helen is from a regular public school so she has to adjust to a school filled with basically rich girls. The main trouble starts when she finds some sheet music from a composer that [...]

    6. Quite a good idea: a story of boarding-school life told through the media of a blog. My problem with this book was the coincidence of more than one girl writing a blog about their own experiences at St Mallory's without any of the other bloggers appearing to know about it; and three authors means three different writing styles, which stood out in the work. Also, the name of the school: too close to Enid Blyton's Malory Towers.
