The Malory Towers is a series about a girl named Darrell, she goes to boarding school at Malory Towers and is very proud of it. Each book is about her as she moves up in her forms, (there is the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th form). Along with her, there are many other girls with her who go up with her in the forms The most important ones are Sally, Gwendoline, Alicia, Bill (, and many more. Sally is Darrell’s best friend, they become friends in the 2nd book. Gwendoline is very feather-headed, she doesn’t care about anything except herself and she is very spoiled, Darrell always tries to put a little sense in her head but it doesn’t always work. Alicia is very smart and clever, she plays tricks on the teachers all the time and can still work hard. Darrell sometimes admires her but other times she doesn’t because Alicia also had a hard, jealous streak. Bill is a girl who grew up with her 7 brothers, as a result, she loves horses and is very boyish. Once, when Bill’s horse was in trouble Darrell helped Bill find help and she stayed with the horse until help came. I like this series because you see the character growing up through the books, and it is a very fun story.
