This is the sequel to “What Katy Did”. Now recovered from her long paralysis, Katy Carr and her sister Clover are sent to Hillsover boarding school with their snobby cousin, Lilly Page, for one year.
The girls make friends with a number of fellow borders at the school, and particularly with the mischievous Rosamond Redding (Rose Red). Together, Katy, Clover and Rose get into “scrapes”, start a secret sorority, and suffer through the rather extreme disciplinary tactics of their teachers, particularly Miss Jane.
During their year at Hillsover, Katy is a positive influence to the younger girls at the school, while they help her to reclaim some of the youthfulness she has lost as a result of her long illness.
