Fresh from London, Rebecca is pitched into life at an elite boarding school on the coast when her parents are sent abroad – and she’s the only new girl in her Year. Lonely and anxious to prove herself, she decides to write something for the school magazine. But the piece that appears is not the one she submitted and it leads to a scandal that rocks the school. It’s a good thing that one girl, at least, is on her side…

“Like other giants of the genre, Anne Digby recreates the genuine flavour of schoolgirl aspirations and anguishes, friendships and rivalries” – COLLECTORS’ DIGEST

What Reviewers are Saying:

“First Term at Trebizon, is a nice, quick read about Rebecca Mason going off to boarding school. She is joining Trebizon school as the only new 2nd year. Even though this book is geared more towards the tween/teen age group, I did enjoy it. I would recommend the book especially to younger readers. I think many can identify with Rebecca. I would have liked more details about the other students and classroom life, such as was there a story behind Debbie’s attitude? When I was finished, my first thought was “it’s done already.” I wanted to read more. I think I will read more of the books in the series to see how Rebecca and her friends grow up.” ~ Angela

 “A simple story about a shy girl entering a new boarding school as a second year. This would be a good choice for any tween who struggles with confidence or worries about being the “new girl”. Friendship and doing the right thing prevail.” ~ Jenny

    There is something about boarding school stories that stirs excitement in the stomach. This one sounds very helpful for those who have just joined a new school.
