(Age: 9+) The main character in The Naughtiest Girl Keeps a Secret is young Elizabeth, who goes to Whyteleafe Boarding School and has a reputation for being the naughtiest girl in the school. She has worked hard to change her ways but when she is asked to keep John's secret her old reputation starts to cause problems for her.
This novel is aimed at girls and is recommended for those who are aged 9+ and independent readers. The story is quick moving with easy to read and descriptive text. It tackles the issues most children face - pleasing everyone, being your own person and doing the right thing.
Author, Anne Digby, takes on the classic writing of Enid Blyton to recreate more stories about Elizabeth, the naughtiest girl.
