"The boarding school is such a standard setting for corporal punishment stories that it comes as a pleasant surprise to see one where there is more than one story going on at once.
In short order the author runs us through the regular set up for a school caning story, then adds the hint of sexual submissiveness, layers on betrayal and tops it off with a wonderful twist this reviewer hadn't seen coming.
All this done with John Benson's customary skill and brevity. That we don't even see sight nor sound of a cane is testimony to its quality, and there's no trace of magic either."
Julie and Angie are discussing discipline at their boarding school. Julie reacts by disappearing off to the girls toilets when she hears that the cane is administered on the bare. Angie phones Mr Murcheson and snitches on her friend - but what price does she pay for doing so ...?
