Now Harriet is getting better and better on the ice, and Lalla doesn’t like it. Does Harriet want to save their friendship more than she wants to skate?

“White Boots. Author: Noel (Ballet Shoes) Streatfeild. And you know we might very well leave it at that – for what higher recommendation is wanted? Noel Streatfeild has that happy, skilful knack of turning her characters into real people – something which only really good novelists can do. A first-rate book.”

“Noel Streatfeild’s position in the children’s book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and real understanding of the surfaces of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort.”
“Noel Streatfeild is an author who is a true master of her craft.”

Lalla is furious, and Harriet, in her misery, knows what she must do. To keep Lalla’s friendship, she must fail her next test, on purpose …
