Then, unwittingly, Rebecca sparks off a row that rocks the school and she finds that her new friends – Tish Anderson and Sue Murdoch, amongst others – are all on her side. The teachers come across as human beings, the dastardly deed is nicely set up, Exton makes a decent villain and her promise to get revenge is, I hope, played out in one of the later books – there are fourteen in the series and along with an ending that celebrates friendship, this has a lot to like.
I really quite enjoyed it. Feb 03, Robin Stevens rated it it was amazing. An absolute hug of a book, this is school storytelling at its warm, delightful, comforting best. It’s just the best boarding school series, truly. Loved firsst so much once again. I’ll never grow tired of Trebizon and its marvellous details – cocoa time, copying things on best paper, making friends, paying for a glossy school magazine out of your pocket money.
So many things that bring me back to my childhood and yet are even better than what I ever experienced. Reread in December As cosy as ever. Love this series so much. R reread in December Reread in February I can’t believe I haven’t reread these last year. It’s good to go back to Trebizon, it’s such a comforting world. I absolutely love the school magazine details in this.
This was so nice! I was craving a boarding school story and this met yerm needs beautifully.
The characters are well fleshed-out for this type of novel, the friendships are really good and the plot was gripping. I really enjoyed reading about The Trebizon Journal and the girls’ creativity and drive was inspiring. Tish was my favourite character. I’m so happy I found this series, it’s exactly the kind of school adventure I was looking for.
Feb 14, Andrea rated it liked it Shelves: First in an apparently popular series that I’d not heard of before – boarding school stories set in the 70s which gives them a very different tone to the much earlier ones. Short, engaging, without being urgently compelling or transformative – though no doubt it would be much more interesting to young teens. With her parents off trebizonn work in Saudi Arabia, Rebecca is off to a boarding school for the first time ever, starting in the second year of high school after all the others in her year have First in an apparently popular series that I’d not heard of before – boarding school stories set in the 70s which gives them a very different tone to the much earlier ones.
With her parents off to work in Saudi Arabia, Rebecca is off to a boarding school for the first time ever, starting in the second year of high school after all the others in her year have had a chance to already get to tdrm each other. Rebecca is a literate girl with a desire to scribble poetry. There are familiar notes – the early dirst who is not, the desire to not seem pushing or overeager, the retreat into solitude after mildly mucking up in the friend department, and the dramatic and compelling injustice.
Digby doesn’t milk the compelling injustice, not giving Rebecca a chance to be a complete social pariah, and issues are cleared up relatively quickly. On the whole I think I prefer that to chapters of angst.
Nice, light, and entertaining. Will continue the series for at least another book. Sep 20, Nicolle rated it liked it. I had read a few of the Trebizon books when I was a girl and trebzion the boarding school experience and friendships in the books. Reading Harry Potter another boarding school in a sense made me want to revisit the series, and I recently bought the books I was missing to complete my collectIon.
This is a sweet story about life and friendships at boarding school, with a lovely message about honesty. Very enjoyable and a book I will be recommending! Oct 02, Selma rated it it was amazing. The main character is Rebecca Masson she goes to boarding school.
She integrated the Trebizon school in the second year which makes it hard to have friends. In the beginning, Rebecca had to adapt to boarding schools and the way of living because she had never been.
Rebecca had two friends Tish and Sue who were treblzon of the Trebizon magazine. Rebecca’s dormitory and girls in her class had a name which was Juniper. She then writes a story for the school magazine, fidst half of the school is now against her. Tish and Sue help her get through this and also a boy that she meets in her class. Robbie Anderson becomes Rebecca’s boyfriend, and they make a great team altogether.
By the end of the book, all the magazine drama was forgotten. Thus, Rebecca and her friends had the best first term ever. This book taught me how boarding school life was in the 70s. In my opinion, the author wrote this book to pass an important message.
Another thing that made the story fun were the characters and how they trbeizon towards girst other. I liked all the characters except for Lucy Hubbard because she was very mean to Rebecca. My favorite character would be Rebecca because I love her way of acting and personality. This book trrm be one of my favorite. I like this genre of book, and this author writes a little like Jacqueline Wilson. Her book Best Friends has the same drama, and I enjoyed both of these books.
Overall I enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward reading all the series. The book First Term at Trebizon includes many dramatical parts. All the book has something important is happening. This is why I had no parts I liked least every part of the book was my favorite. This rerm I would recommend to only girls from the age 8 to Boys would not like this book because it is all about girl drama.
I think girls in my class would enjoy reading it, so I recommend it to all seventh-grade girls. Lastly, I would recommend this book to teens who are going to a boarding school because they could maybe learn from Rebecca’s experience.
Thus, I found this book entertaining because I could easily compare the way of living germ girls my age in the past to now. View all 4 comments. The First Term at Trebizon is boarding school storytelling at it’s best. Wonderful characters with lots of excitement and fun. A delightful adventure, in which friendship and truth shine the way.
I hadn’t heard of the Trebizon series before, but am really looking forward to reading the rest there are fjrst altogether and can’t wait for my eight year old daughter wt discover the world of Rebecca, Tish and Sue.
I think this collection of books has stood the test of time and the lack of tech The First Term at Trebizon is boarding school storytelling at it’s best. I think this collection of books has stood the test of time and the lack of technology will fascinate the younger reader. I loved the Malory Towers and St Clare’s series by Enid Blyton when I was younger and believe that the Trebizon collection should be up there with them. Will definitely be getting copies for our school library.
I received a copy of this book from Toppsta in exchange for an honest review. Aug 02, Sarah Crawford rated it really liked it. This is a modern version of the Angela Brazil books. Rebecca is going to a girl’s school.
