The fifth title in the Chalet School series. St Scholastika’s School opens across the lake during the holidays. From the beginning, the Chalet girls and the Saints are rivals. An accident on the ice sees Joey and a Saint nearly die; the Middles break out in jokes, including the famous powdered hair incident; there is chicken pox; Grizel and her La Rochelle friend Gerry appear; and finally a letter to Elizaveta, Princess of Belsornia, leads to the ending of the feud. The Armada paperback had minor, frequent, cuts.
