About the Author: Evelyn Smith

Born in Leamington Spa, in 1885, British children's author Constance Evelyn Smith was the daughter of Henry Bartlett Smith, high bailiff of Warwickshire County Court, and his wife, Eleanor Langford. She was educated at Leamington High School (now known as the Kingsley School), and at Royal Holloway College, where she graduated with first class honors in English, in 1907. She taught at Glasgow High School from 1909-1923, until ill health forced her into an early retirement. She turned to writing at this period, and edited plays and collections of poetry, in addition to publishing her girls' school stories. She died of pneumonia in 1928.

Nicky was a schoolgirl who, as she confessed to her diary, hated being only "middling." She tried tennis, but was only fairly good; she tried to swim at the deep end and was nearly drowned. But she helped Philippa to "find herself" and circumvented some of the tricks of the interfering Crystal, but these achievements were not enough. She was a thorough sport, at any rate, and the reader will be delighted by the success which at last rewarded a very jolly heroine.
