I received this copy from Barrington Stoke in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

The blurb from the back of the book:

At an Edinburgh school in the 1930s, glamorous, outspoken Miss Jean Brodie is quite certain of her role as teacher: to devote the wisdom of her prime years to six young girls, the creme de la creme, who will receive an education of the most unique kind. Known in school as the infamous Brodie set, the girls are soon entangled in their teacher’s world of unconventional ideas and manipulative schemes – destined to live in Miss Brodie’s shadow for the rest of their lives. Muriel Spark’s timeless and eternally modern novel of power and influence, brought to life for a new age of readers in a stunning dyslexia-friendly edition.


I hadn’t read this story before, but when Barrington Stoke published this dyslexia friendly version, I had no choice BUT to read it.

I’m glad I did. It is an interesting story, and in some ways I found it quite harrowing.

The story is about a set of girls called the ‘Brodie Girls’, and it is told from the point of view of the young girls. Sandy is one of those girls and she frequently looks back on her life at school and of Miss Brodie.

Miss Brodie is an eccentric teacher who likes to teach her own things and in her own ways that is not part of the curriculum.

I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you struggle with reading as this publisher makes sure to print their books so much differently to other books. They are so much easier to read.

I gave this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
