Every girl should know what the finishing touches are.

That dash of gloss on the cheekbones to lift your complexion.
High heels for poise, and a luscious lipstick for the perfect pout.
It's the spritz of perfume on the pulse points and the...

....ability to stand on your own two feet?

When 21st century girl Betsy is called in to rescue an exclusive finishing school from financial ruin, she knows she must change the school drastically, if it's ever to survive.

So it's out with debutante decorum and in with modern manners and man-management.

But before she can teach the girls how to walk in high heels, Betsy may just have to remember how to wear them herself.

With the added bonus that her gorgeous friend Jamie and the surprisingly hunky bursar Mark both seem to rather approve of her new stilettos...
Hester Browne bakes a perfect sponge, collects bright red lip-sticks and etiquette books, and divides her time between the Kings Road and Great Malvern.
