  • It was in circumstances of mystery that Flavia ("Copper") Ansell joined the Chalet School. Why must she change her name from Letton to Ansell: Why was she sent to Switzerland at all? Why did her step-father forbid her to speak to him on the train to Besancon? Why was she so strictly forbidden to have anything to do with strangers? Why did the strange American woman show such an interest in the school - especially its red-headed members?
  • Flavia found out the main reason when, for the sake of the girl's safety, the Head explained the need for all the precautions. But it did not end there and the school had some odd and unpleasant happenings to face before everything wound up satisfactorily.
