Overview

Wayward Schoolgirls! Wild Passions! And Winning At Any Cost. . .

Welcome to Metamora Academy for Girls, where some rules are made to be broken.

Roberta "Bobby" Blanchard is crushed when an accident forces her to leave the glamorous world of professional field hockey. As Games Mistress at Metamora Academy, she's dismayed to learn that sports take a backseat to literary and artistic pursuits. But Bobby's arrival at the elite boarding school will unearth more than one girl's hidden abilities, and spur some ardent rivalry between pupils--and teachers--on and off the field, including. . .

Laura Burnham--the bohemian Art Mistress, sultry, seductive. . .and married. . .


Enid Butler--the Math Mistress has a natural eye for figures. . .


Mrs. Mona Gilvang--housekeeper and resident "merry widow," she stirs up more than hot cocoa. . .


Carole Kerwin and Angela Cohen O'Shea--the student body's most promising athletes have nothing in common. . .until they join Bobby's team. . .


Miss Craybill--Could Metamora's revered headmistress have something sinister to hide?

With a fearsome field hockey team to build and the suspicious death of the former Math Mistress to solve, Bobby Blanchard has her hands full. But the intrepid gym teacher has a knack for uncovering every girl's secrets. And along the way, she may just learn some thrilling lessons about love. . .

    Great Lesbian pulp fiction

    Reminds me of the old Beebo Brinker books. Great style recreation. Full of old memories for old lesbians like me: camp atmosphere, girls' school, butches vs. femmes, archery in gym class, collegiate field hockey, detailed clothing descriptions, smoldering descriptions of desire with no graphic details, crushes, and marshmallow roasts with a mystery you won't guess until the end. Keep it up Monica! More. More!

    more from this reviewer

    Parody of 1950's lesbian pulp novel is also an engrossing novel for today!

    After an injury sidelined her plans to play professional women's field hockey, Bobby Blanchard accepts a position as "games mistress" and coach at an exclusive girls' boarding school, and soon becomes acquainted with the society-bred group of girls who intimidate most of the students as well as many faculty members. Bobby has to deal with her crush on a fellow teacher, while regretting an incident where she gave in to temptation with an adoring student. She also deals with distractions ranging from a mysterious "glowing" bicycle rider spotted in the woods at night, the suspicious death of a former longtime teacher in a fall from a tower on campus, and a series of unfortunate injuries and illnesses that seem to plague her student hockey team's opponents.

    The author succeeds in providing a hilarious parody of 1950's era lesbian pulp novels, along with an engrossing mystery and positive life lesson on accepting oneself. Well written and engrossing, with a wealth of colorful, relatable characters. Score this one as a field goal, and five stars out of five.
