Alice-Miranda Takes The Lead (#3)
Alice-Miranda is thrilled to be back at school, where the girls are preparing a play with the neighboring boys' school.
But it's not all glitter and stage lights: there are rumours of a witch in the woods, and Jacinta and Millie are clashing with a rude new student, Sloane, and her pushy mother, September, who's plotting to steal the fortune she's always dreamed of. It's up to Alice-Miranda to set things right

Jacqueline Harvey has spent her working life teaching in girls' boarding schools. She is pleased to say that she has never yet encountered a headmistress like Miss Grimm, but she has come across quite a few girls who remind her a little of Alice-Miranda.

She is currently working on Alice-Miranda's next adventure.
