This was quite different from most of the books in the series as Drina is sent to a finishing school in Switzerland where she becomes very unhappy. It was quite refreshing to see her struggle to mix with girls her age who only want to get married. As a result she saw another side to life and thanks to the resourcefullness of the ballet teacher she created a ballet which the school performed and inspired the girls to work harder at their dancing.

This was bit more out of ordinary for the Drina series, I really quite enjoyed the setting at the Swiss boarding school (or should I say "finishing school").

Drina at a Swiss boarding school! Away from the Dominick for a year, and this time not just in "exile" at Chalk Green! However will she bear it??
Drina's grandparents, with whom she lives, move to Switzerland for Grandfather's health. Drina attends a Swiss boarding school so she can live close by.
I had not read the Drina books since I was a child and I recently re-read them all. I read the first 5 as a child and then as a teen I hunted down the final 6 once I realized they existed. I am happy to say that for the most part they hold up to the test of time. They are very much in the style of British school stories but I quite like those. I think the whole series is definitely worth the effort it takes to hunt them down.
Read this series in JR High and simply LOVED them! I need to track these down.....
Juicy so far...
