From the cover..

Marigold Green calls herself 'hideous, quaint and barmy'. Other people call her 'Bilgewater', a corruption of Bill's daughter. Growing up in the boys school where her father is housemaster, she is convonced of her own plainness and peculiarity. Groomed by the wise and loving Paula, upstaged by bad, beautiful Grace, and ripe for seduction by entirely the wrong sort of boy, she suffers extravagantly and comically in her pilgramage though the turbulent, twilight world of alraming adolescence.

An enjoyable enough book, but didn't really grip me. The characters are quirky, to say the least, and although I didn't find the heroine particulalry sympathetic, I did want to read on to find out what happened to her.

Offered on the BookRelay and accepted by vi0let - this will be going in the post next week.
