Jolene Jordan has been forced to join KLASS by her father and she dislikes the fact that she has to toe his line. She makes up her mind to be extremely rude, disobey the teachers and break all rules; so that she would be expelled from school and her father would be humiliated. For sometime Jo is the ‘Mind your own business’ girl and the bottom performer in her class until a sudden unfortunate twist in her life makes the girl change over a new leaf. The story revolves around Jo’s whirlwind journey through KLASS, her dilemma to choose a game as her MAJOR, her resolve to get thrown out of KLASS as a rebuke to her father and her struggle to overpower her notion to be friends with anyone at KLASS.
Growing up on Enid Blyton books, I have a soft spot for all books with boarding school setting. Reading the book, one could guess that the author also loved these books!
Coming to the story line, I quite enjoyed reading this book, brought back the memories of reading Malory Towers and Naughtiest girls.
The writing style is quite simple, yet it keeps you engrossed. Since KLASS has a boarding school, that focused majorly on sports, that was a welcome differentiation from other books of the same genre.
I quite liked the twists and turns that were there. The story is quite fresh and refreshing. The characterization were quite nice. Each character, at least the main ones, had their own back stories, that really enhanced the quality of story on the whole.
Even the book cover was interesting, it kind of draws you towards it. The girl on the cover who is looking on from the gate, made quite an interesting visual appeal.
If you like boarding school books, or Enid Blyton ones…pick this one up..you won’t be disappointed!
