|Plot Summary of The Naughtiest Girl In The School|
|"Elizabeth Allen is a spoiled and naughty child with rich parents. After trying the patience of her parents and governess, they decide to send her to Whyteleafe School, where the children make their own rules and punished bad behaviour. Elizabeth, who has never been to school before, is angry at being sent to school and vows to be very mischievous in order to get expelled.
When Elizabeth first goes to Whyteleafe, she is in for a hard time. After years of pampering she is unacustomed to the school environment where she does not receive as much attention, so she becomes very naughty and causes havoc, but she does not get sent home. Instead she is punished by the head children and begins to feel small for the first time. During her punishments she makes friends with a quiet girl called Joan, who had lacked parental love. Elizabeth decides to cheer her up and sends her birthday cards and presents, pretending that Joan's parents had sent them.
After news that it was not Joan's parents who sent the cards, Elizabeth writes a letter of apology to them, and they visit Joan, who is delighted with their newly-found affection. Meanwhile, Elizabeth has been granted permission to leave the school at half-term, but after having made a few friends and becoming involved in school activities, will she give up her new chance and leave?"
