In Dear Miss Demeanor, Hess takes on the challenge of writing a novel in which the characters are all female and the setting is an all-girls boarding school. The result is an inventive and humorous story that is sure to entertain readers of all ages.
At Miss Malaprop's Boarding School for Young Ladies, the students are required to wear uniforms and to adhere to strict rules. But even at a school as strict as Miss Malaprop's, the girls are allowed to be themselves. They are free to express themselves through their clothing, their hair, and their personalities.
The students at Miss Malaprop's are a diverse bunch, and their differences are what make the school such a fun place to be. There is Rebecca, the brainy girl who is always reading books; Tabby, the tomboy who loves to play sports; and Jane, the popular girl who is always trying to outdo her friends.
