Summary

When Alice Mistlethwaite is shipped off to boarding school in Scotland, it's nothing like she imagines. 

Run by the mysterious Major, there are no punishments, and the students are more likely to be taught about body painting or extreme survival than maths or English! 

Then Alice's dad goes missing, and she must run away to find him. Can she persuade her new friends to help? So begins an epic quest across wild Scottish highlands and islands, where the children will face danger and excitement at every turn.

We'd recommend this to all children!

We loved the forming of a really firm friendship and all the adventure! We also liked the Scottish setting, amd island travels.
