Hi Everyone!

My name is Sian, and I live in New Zealand. I've been reading the Chalet School books since my sister was given Jo Of The Chalet School for her 9th birthday. (I was 11...). I am two books short of a complete reread that I started in December. I own all of the books in Collins/Armada except for Joey Goes To The Oberland. I just plunged and bought The Chalet Girls In Exile from GGB. I had no idea that the books were edited! I did wonder about some missing stuff... things like Phil getting Polio, but I always thought thew were quite complete otherwise! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone!
