I really liked that it was the start for the second form, that Mildred did her best again to try to help a new girl (only to find out she is family of Ethel), and various other things.
I didn’t like that we magically have miss Hardbroom again for Form mistress. Really I dislike the character, she mean and never really listens if Mildred has something to say, and always seems to try to find something wrong with Mildred. I really wish she would soften up a bit.
Also, what is a shame, that once again, at the end of the book Mildred saves the day again. First book: Oh what a coincidence, Second Book: Again?, Third Book, Yeah we know it now.. 🙁
While the rest of the book is quite interesting, and yeah for Ethel getting punishment for something, it is just a shame that the endings are so predictable. I know it is a kids book and all, but I know from myself that even then I didn’t like predictable endings that much.
