'Darrell Rivers begins her happy life at Malory Towers two terms later than the other girls, but she soon makes firm friends with Sally, the steady one, and the adoring Mary Lou.

Darrell and her friends grow together as they share their schooldays. There are new students to induct, sporting matches to be won, tempers to control and tricks to play on teachers.'

This was such a joyful read.

I had honestly forgotten how much I love Enid Blyton until I started reading her books again. I don't know if I have ever read Malory Towers before but I am glad I have read it now.

The entire concept of this book was fantastic; going away to boarding school for the first time, having to adjust to different rules and personalities. Watching these characters navigate their new normal really captivated me.

I loved getting to see all of the different personalities these characters had find a place in this story. From shy to out going, every individual character trait had a role to play as the story unfolded.

I was genuinely surprised by how deep some of the parts of this story were. It was so expertly told that it wasnt until the end that you realise just how much this little book covered in such a short amount of time.

Re reading Enid Blyton has been an absolute joy, and I personally believe that Malory Towers by Enid Blyton should be on everyone's TBR.
