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!

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. - Bob Lind, Echo Magazine
