• Nicky of Nine Schools

Nicky is responsible for the train's emergency stop and for the breaking of the gym skylight - all before she even meets her new headmistress. 

'Your first school, I suppose?' asks the gym mistress.

'My ninth,' is Nicky's startling reply.

Having started so badly, Nicky decides to play on her bad reputation but her innate good nature reasserts itself when she's called upon to help others. By the end of term, it's clear that no one wants her to go to a tenth school.
