The Sixth Form at St Clare's by Pamela Cox

On the Back of the Book

'That's exactly what I'm suggesting,' broke in Isabel impatiently. 'I think there are TWO Doras!'

The O'Sullivan Twins are now head girls! And two heads are better than one when dealing with Dora, a new first former.

There's more trouble at St. Clare's'

My Thoughts

Something is immediately off with this book. The reason for this is, although it's a continuation of the St. Clare's series by Enid Blyton, this book hasn't actually been written by Enid Blyton.

It has all the hallmarks of a St Clare's novel, a thief, a misunderstood teen, all of my favourite characters. It's enjoyable enough but there's something missing and there's no denying it. It just doesn't feel right.

Another thing I noted which made me realise just how different these authors are is xhaptewr length. Enid Blyton tended to have eight pages per chapter at the longest but Pamela Cox's chapters just go on.

My Rating

2.5 stars - An okay book but it doesn't fit in the series if you're a die hard Enid Blyton and have been brought up reading her stories. If that doesn't bother you however, then this is a lovely book for children and adults alike.
