In this book, Rosemary Auchmuty looks at school novels with popular female heroines, such as the Abbey Girl books and the Chalet School series. She questions their ability to portray strong, independent women, and asks why the female authors often resort to the conventions of society, marrying the characters off into a life of domesticity.
