Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones has survived her first term at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale. And now Jacinta Headlington-Bear, the school’s second best tantrum thrower, is joining Alice-Miranda’s family for term break. Who would have thought it!
The two girls are looking forward to a relaxing holiday at Highton Hall. But a cranky boy is causing mischief on the estate, a movie star has come to visit, and a stranger is snooping about.
Add a naughty pony, a hint of romance and a dastardly scheme, and Jacinta and Alice-Miranda might have a more exciting holiday than they were expecting.
“Ever since reading the first Alice-Miranda book, I’ve been dying to read the second book. Finally, here it is, and I love it. Alice-Miranda has finished her first term at boarding school and is going home for a holiday. It’s supposed to be relaxing but it’s not because there are so many visitors and stacks of mysteries to solve, such as who kidnapped Aunt Gee? Now I want the third book.” Matilda Murrihy (11 years), Herald Sun
“Alice-Miranda on Holiday is a gorgeous tale of friendship and mystery, with plenty of twists and turns along the way.” Kids’ Book Review blog
