This comedy engagingly captures the uncomplicated innocence of Angela Brazil’s schoolgirl novels. It is about the attempts of super-achiever Daisy Meredith to submerge her poor elementary school background and find acceptance in the snobby confines of Grangewood School for Young Ladies, in the year 1927.
