First GGBP edition paperback of SUMMER TERM AT MELLING - Melling series by Margaret Biggs and published by Girls Gone By Publishers, Somerset in 2007. It was first published in 1957. This complete and unabridged edition is now out of print.

The book is in near fine condition (clean illustrated covers and black lettering on the front and spine) with only minor shelf wear. Internally, the pages are clean and tight, there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Margaret Biggs (born 9 July 1929, Kent) is a popular and collectible exponent of the girls' School story. She is best known for her Melling School series of books, first published by Blackie in the 1950s. The series hold nine books and More Stories of Melling School. It is set at a weekly boarding school and is unusual in that it shows boarding school life and home life side by side.

The interaction between girls and boys is also atypical of the genre at that time. The Melling series was republished by Girls Gone By Publishers in the 2000s and the reprints, whilst retaining the original text and artwork, have new introductions by Margaret Biggs, who is ‘taking great pleasure in the republication of her books’.

Ms Biggs has also written two new volumes in the series, Kate at Melling, set twelve years after the earlier books, and Changes at Melling, which were published by Girls Gone By Publishers in 2008 and 2009 respectively.

Summer term at Melling was first published by Blackie and Son Limited, in 1957 and it is the sixth book in the Melling series following The New Girl at Melling (1956).

Tall, good-looking Pat Evans is an arrogant and unpopular prefect at Melling, that small, happy and informal school. ‘Pat’, say the Lower Thirds, ‘is horrible’, and indeed, Pat is disliked by almost everyone and particularly Roddy Blake.

When the summer term opens, the shy and gentle headmistress, Miss Pickering, asks Franny, who is head girl, to befriend Pat and to encourage Roddy to be friendly, too. But ‘Leopards don’t change their spots’, is Roddy’s opinion. Yet, as the weeks go by, it begins to look as if Roddy is wrong. Even Susan, Roddy’s gay and lovable little sister, becomes convinced that Pat is nice and – after some misunderstandings! – Pat finds great happiness in friendship with Roddy and Franny.

Exciting and pleasant events are followed by examinations, during which Pat is accused of cheating and deception. Can it be true? It is Roddy who finds the real culprit and persuades her to own up. And so Pat is free of suspicion and able to enjoy to the full the wonderful party her parents give for her – a most satisfying conclusion to this addition to the popular series of stories about Melling

191 pages.
