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.
