Title: Leith and Friends
Author: Clare Mallory
Publisher: Girls Gone By Publishers
Leith and Friends charts the development of the friendship between Leith and Persis, an older girl. It shows how Leith matures from her unhealthy ‘crush’ on Persis to a much healthier view of the relationship and the beginning of a real friendship between them when Leith comes to see the older girl as she really is and not the unrealistic object of her thoughts.
This is the only one of New Zealander Clare Mallory’s books to be published only in England, and Patricia Caldwell, author of the Vivians books, has written a brilliant introduction on Secondary Education in England and New Zealand in the 1940s.
