No Friends for Fran

Plot

Sally Lenton had just moved to the village of Hollybrook. Whilst exploring, she went to the grounds of Denby house and spotted an unhappy girl at the window. She found out the girl was Fran Halliday and her mother kept her a prisoner because she was afraid Fran may catch a dreadful disease and die like her elder sister did. Mrs Halliday agreed Sally could be friends with Fran on the condition she could not ever leave Denby house, as she didn’t want her to bring any germs in. With the help of Mrs Gill the housekeeper, Sally sneaks back to her mother and with her agreement, she goes back to Fran to stay for the school holidays.

Lessons from Lindy

Plot

Angie Parsons is tired of being taken for granted and being pushed around because she is non-assertive and shy. She thinks the answer is to take lessons from Lindy Marchant, a selfish girl who always gets her own way, and copy everything Lindy does. Lindy’s lessons include being pushy, playing dirty tricks, taking advantage of people and manipulating them, and being selfish in general. Although Angie inwardly questions Lindy’s underhand methods, they always seem to work out for her in the end – until Mr Parsons collapses because of Angie copying Lindy.
