Author(s): Jacqueline Harvey
Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones has survived her first term at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale. And now Jacinta Headlington-Bear, the school's second best tantrum thrower, is joining Alice-Miranda's family for term break. Who would have thought it
The two girls are looking forward to a relaxing holiday at Highton Hall. But a cranky boy is causing mischief on the estate, a movie star has come to visit and a stranger is snooping about.
Add a naughty pony, a hint of romance and a dastardly scheme, and Jacinta and Alice-Miranda might have a more exciting holiday than they were expecting.
Jacqueline Harvey is an award-winning, best-selling children's author from Australia. A former teacher and Deputy Headmistress, she writes the very popular Alice-Miranda books and has recently launched a spin-off series about a lovely little girl called Clementine Rose.
Jacqueline Harvey has spent her working life teaching in girls' boarding schools. She is pleased to say that she has never yet encountered a headmistress like Miss Grimm, but she has come across quite a few girls who remind her a little of Alice-Miranda.

She is currently working on Alice-Miranda's next adventure.
