Daisy Pulls it Off is a tongue-in-cheek look at the world of the girls' private school, of  Malory Towers and St Clare's. It is the story of a teenage girl, Daisy Meredith, who is  from a poor family of Opera singers. Her father has gone missing, and she is brought  up by her mother who has to revert to teaching singing lessons to pay the rent. She  wins a scholarship to boarding school, and then has to deal with the snobbery and  cattiness from the girls who go there.   Sybil takes a particular dislike to the heroine of the play, and devise a series of plans to  discredit Daisy and get her expelled from school, that would make Machiavelli wince.  However, Daisy makes friends with the head girl, Clare, and finds out that her family,  who were very rich, have lost the family treasure. It is hidden somewhere in the school.   Daisy manages to save the day, even when threatened with expulsion, when a midnight  expedition with a group of girls goes wrong. Maude is left hanging on to a cifftop for  dear life, when Daisy saves her. After this Sybils own up to her dastardly plans, and  apologises in front of the whole school. But this is not all... in true Enid Blyton style, the  treasure is found, and Daisy discovers that the school caretaker is in actual fact.... her  father!
