If you've enjoyed the first year at Silver Spires as much as the School Friends girls then we'd love to hear from you! Email us now at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you thought. We'll feature our faves on this page
It's me, Ros, the Queen of Fashion, The Prettiest Princess Of Them All, The Bookworm! I wanted to tell you guys about the book I am reading right now. It's called First Term at Silver Spires. It's AMAZING!!! I love all about Kates and Lydia (she's mean!). They're so cool and I wish I could go there. I WANT TO GO TO SILVER SPIRES!!!!!!!!!! However, there's a girls boarding school near my house and my mum said it would be great for me to go there! I passed the exam and I'm in Emerald Dorm. There's some really nice girls, I've already made a BFF, her name's Martha, but I call her Ice Skate Queen or Marthy. There's also a girl called Naomi, though she's not a princess! Fingers crossed nothing goes wrong! From Pretty Princess (my nickname is Queen of Fashion or Pretty Princesss).
I just love these books and I am reading Mystery at Silver Spires and it is too much fun in the school library. I was wondering which book to borrow, then my friend saw that book and recommended it to me and I borrowed that book and found it awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Thank you Khushi! Only because of you I too have been a part of it. Thank you so much and I will tell others about it! YOU ARE AWESOME SILVER SPIRES !
Silver Spires are the best books ever!
I have read all of them and I would recommend them to all my friends to read! :)
The awesome Silver Spires books... <3
Hi....u know wat?? I love ur books like anythng...they r so superb and fantastic...they remind me of so many things....they're the best....but just don't stop writing...plzz continue.....LOVE U SILVER SPIRES
I love Sliver Spires! I have read 3 of them and I loved them so much I read one book a day. I love them! Keep on writing!
Too exciting to stop!
Hi there! I haven't read the second series of School Friends books, but I have read two of the first series of Silver Spires books. They are very good and I really enjoyed the stories - it's hard to put the book down when you're in the middle of it, too exciting to stop! Thanks for writing these books, they are really good and full of real-life problems.
Me and my family love these books!
Hey I'm Tria. Your books are just, a-ma-zing! All the words in the books are really flowing and comfortable. Let me tell my story, the first one who bought Silver Spires was me, and my mom read it too, and she really loved it and told my dad about it, so my dad tried to read it too, guess he likes what me and my mom like! My family loves your books! I think before I read them I thought, "What is this?!!" I thought it would be just like Enid Blyton. But I know I'm wrong! So wrong! The ending is really, REALLY UNPREDICTABLE. Because all my family love your books, when we just bought it, it was a bone of contention! Haha, it feels so LOL and we often race like 'who can predict what will possibly happen in the ending'. These books are like my 'friendship doctor' too, so many a problems in the characters' friendships just like my friendship problems. These books contains advice that is hidden behind the story too. You're really talented and I love you so much. Me and my family are waiting for your next book ;)
I love the Silver Spires books! When I read like 2 chapters I can't stand waiting to read on the next day. I think I am more like Nicole or Mia, because I like the things they both do... I have read all the books of 2009 and from the new 2010 Silver Spires books I only have 4 more to read and I have finshed them all so I really hope there will be new ones coming out soon!!
I love Ann Bryant
I love the Ann Bryant book Drama at Silver Spires because it is totally fantastic and amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for our childhoods
Two years ago, my little sister was 9 and when she got the first School Friends series she begged me to read them to her, so I did, I was shocked that I actually enjoyed them! Seeing as I was 13 at the time and she made me read them to her over and over. Now, she just got the next series for her 11th birthday, and although she’s in year six and can read perfectly well, she got me to read them to her! I’m 15 and still love the books, and although my little sister is a bit grown up for me reading to her, she still loves it, just as much as I love reading them to her. Thank you for our childhoods.
I think that Nicole, Sasha, Emily, Bryony, Antonia and Izzy are sooo cool! Izzy is most like me because I used to do ballet but then we had to move away.
Your books are AMAZING
Although I have only read your 2009 books I love them! I have read your First Term at Silver Spires and Rivalry at Silver Spires. I am getting some more of them for Christmas, I am sooooooo excited about reading the rest of them. I love Rivalry at Silver Spires, it's about horrid chat room messages but who is being mean to Grace...? NOT TELLING
Charlotte W Xxxx
I love this website, it totally rocks!
I’ve read all the 2009 Silver Spires books, but I only have two 2010 ones, which I got from the library. I will try to find the others. I love this website, it totally rocks! And I love Ann Bryant, too. Her books are so brilliant. Have you read the Summer Camp Secrets books by Melissa. J. Morgan? If not, read them! They are sooo good! But the first one, Miss Manhattan, is the best. So, please, read them and you will be sooo happy you did!
Katy is the best
Hello, I'm Feni from Indonesia :) I love Silver Spires very much :D ohh, i like the character of Katy. Katy is so fashionable :)
Hey, I have read your First Term at Silver Spires book, and I love it! I'm sure 100% I will buy the other School Friends book. I like Georgie, but I think I am like Mia because I play Piano too
I love the Silver Spires books
I have only read the 2009 series and I love it. I really like all the characters and they remind me of myself. My fave character is Jess because she is exactly like me cos I have red hair like hers and I love art and we both have have the same secret. When I read the books I feel like that I am that character. Ann I hope that you will make a 2011 series and if you have I have to read them all!!
Hi this is Alia
I love reading the Siver Spires books I have read the drama, secrets. They are the best top books ever
A big fan of silver spires
OMG if my review is on the website then I'd LOVE it! Anyways, I love silver spires, its my BEST book! but now there's another year at silver spires?? OK...I'd love to read it but I'd want to read further about the amethyst girls and I prefer the illustrations on the first one...not saying its horrible or anything. I know a lot of girls love the second silver spires... keep on reading and I hope you guys will finish it (unlike me who is still reading the first one!)...
P.S. I LOVE Silver Spires!
I am SO glad I picked up First Term at Silver Spires in the School Library! I have just finished it. It was such a cool book now I'm nagging my mum non stop to buy the rest. I’m definitely most like Jess because I LOVE art.
I've always wanted to go to a boarding school and Silver Spires sounds like the school I wanted to go to. Too bad it's not a real school coz if it was boy would I go there. Oh and thanks for making the books sooooo good coz I just can't put them down and reread them over and over.
I'm gonna check on google if there is a school like Silver Spires and if there is, well, it would be a miracle.

I've only read Princess at Silver Spires and I really enjoyed it. I loved how Naomi had to learn how to control her feelings
and stick up for herself. Matilda
THE BEST BOOKS IN THE WORLD!
A character I like is Jess because she has alot in common with me. My fave character is Naomi because she is so kind and caring.
Ann, Are you going to write another book after Mystery at Silver Spires? Or maybe you could turn it into a TV series?

Best books eva made!!!
I have read quite a lot of them now and I am addicted to them I once read one from 4:30pm to 8:00 pm NO JOKE!!!!!! I think if you made them into movies they would be a huge success!
IT'S THE BEST!
I read the first book and thank u for changing the website.
They are the best!
I CANNOT believe how good these boooks are! I read like every day! I order them from my library I am so in love with them! How do you write such good books?! Also, I think to create a whole new boarding school is really fun! I love these!
Couldn't put it down!
I loved the book so much I honestly just couldn't put it down! When you start reading it you just can't stop! I love your writing style and was wondering if you were going to publish other books after Mystery at Silver Spires? because i would like to know more about those beautiful kittens and cat! Also no pressure but would you be able to put a character in the book called Clare because I am from a place called County Clare in Ireland.
Love your stuff!
I read First Term at Silver Spires, Drama at Silver Spires and Star of Silver Spires. I read one of the new books Party at Silver Spires. I just finished it this morning can’t wait to read all of them by the way are u going to put the new girls on the website?
You can meet the new girls on the updated School Friends website!
I love all the books they're brill
When I got them for a Christmas present I just thought they were any old set of books. But when I started to read them I was amazed at how good they were, the thing I like about them is that when you're reading them it really takes you into their world and you can instantly imagine everything .
x From Maggie x

SILVER SPIRES ROCK!
Hey I love Katy, she is just like me! Will you write any more books? If you do I'm lookiing forword to them! I read one each day, I was so hooked I couldn't stop myself!
Look out for the six new titles in March 2010. If you sign up for the newsletter, we'll send you the latest Silver Spires news and let you know when the new books are available.
I absolutely adore the Amethyst House group but I have to admit that I like Jess the best even though I’m more like Katy! I started the first book last month and was hooked from the first pg and now I’ve read all of them. I’m desperate to read about Antonia, Nicole, Sasha, Izzy, Emily and Bryony’s secrets and adventures at Silver Spires. I’ve always dreamed of going to a boarding school and your books make me feel as if I’m there. Which dorm are the new girls you're writing about in?
Antonia, Nicole, Sasha, Izzy, Emily and Bryony are in Emerald dorm.
Hey,I have loved reading your books they're FAB! So far I have read First Term and Drama and can not wait until I read the next! Will the stories ever come out as a film?
Groovy girl !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A film would be terrific - but no plans yet I'm afraid!
I LOVE your books!
He, I love your books! They are totally fab!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Katy and Grace. And I love Naomi's book. Is this a real school? If it is then pls tell me cause I think I would like to study and have lots of fun at Silver Spires!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi Asees, It's not a real school, but it feels real to me!
See my answer to Katrina below.
I really love your books. They're BRILL! The new series sounds great. My sis' name is Sasha. My favourite character is either Jess or Naomi. I know every paragraph of by heart.
I love your books!
I love your books they are so inspiring my favourite character is Katy.

It was fantastic!
I loved to read the first one, Katy's book. WHOOPI! It was fantastic! YAAHOO! It sets a good example for being brave. I hope lot's of people read this book.
I can’t wait to read Princess at Silver Spires. WHOOOOOOP WHOOOOOOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My fave is Grace's one. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I love these books! I wish the school was real.
P.S I wish Georgie was my ultimate BFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Silver Spires books are the best books ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have read them all and Naomi is my favourite character but the book about Grace is my favourite. I will keep them forever. I have recommended them to nearly all my friends and the all think are great! SILVER SPIRES ROCK!!!!
I have only read First Term at Silver Spires. It was great. I've had to give it back to the library now but I've got Rivalry at Silver Spires and I can't wait till I get to read it. I know it is going to be fabulous. Someone has sent me Drama at Silver Spires and I also think that's going to be brill.
PS I wish I was Naomi.
I love them!
I love the Silver Spires books. I have them all but haven't read them all yet. I've read Drama and Rilvalry and I'm reading Secrets at the minute. My fave character is Georgie and I think I'm most like her, Mia and Jess. Because I look like Georgie, I love singing like Mia and I love art like Jess. I hope there's going to be more Silver Spires books written and out in shops soon! I love them!
From Bryony x
Please write more I beg!
I suggest Cara, Lydia and Fellisia. If you write books about them I'll definitely buy them!
I wish Silver Spires was real!
I love Drama at Silver Spires. It is My Fave Book! It is so cool mostly because it's about Little Women and acting. But Georgie is so funny, crazy and etc! I wish Silver Spires was real, I'd be in that school I'd be just like Katy or Georgie, I can't decide.
From Silver Spires Official Number 1 fan...Bonnie
p.s It is actually Official.
I love the books they are my fave! But is is a real school?
Hi Katrina, It's not a real school, but because I know it inside out it feels real to me. I had to do lots of preparation to create a normal boarding school life as a background for my characters so I worked out their timetable scrupulously and decided on all the clubs and how meals time would work, plus the number of girls in each boarding house, in each year, in each class, and which subjects they would be in sets for etc etc etc!!!
Silver spires books are great!
Pleas write some more. My faivret cairiter is Georgie because she won the Drama contest. And she nerley has the same name as me!
Georgia age 6
I thought the book was really cool and interesting I would totally like to read the whole series
I love the series. I liked the Drama at Silver Spires that was my fav.
I love ur books. They r sooooo Fantabulnificent (fan-tab-ule-nif-i-cent)!!!!!!!!!!! I got the set about a week and a half ago and I have almost finished the first 4. I think I am a mix between all the girls but because I am quite shy I don't think I have a lot of Georgie in me! I've read that there are another series of Books and I'm sooooo excited. I'm gonna nag mum to get them 4 me. My sister has only just read the 1st 4 chapters of first Term @ Silver Spires when she's had it 4 ages.

Hi Clodagh, Good to hear from you. And I'm really pleased you're so into the Silver Spires books. I don't actually have a favourite - writing each one was quite an emotional journey as I reckon there's a little of each one of the six girls in me!
Princess at Silver Spires
Love Princess at Silver Spires to bits!
I have only read the first 2 books! but I just want to get my head into the next one! I think they are great, lots fun to read and I love the characters! my favourite character is Katy!!!!

I love your books!
Hi Ann, I love your books and I hope you make more of them they are amazing! I've got Secrets at Silver Spires and Drama at Silver Spires. My favourite character is Mia. I think she's great. What's your favourite character from your books?
Great that you're enjoying the books. The next batch, which are coming out after summer, feature 6 different girls from another dorm in another house. They've been just as good fun to write as the first 6. I like Mia too. But then I like them all and feel a bit like a mother to all of them too!
Wow these books are amazing!!!!
I saw Drama At Silver Spires and Star of Silver Spires on a shelf in the library and picked it up, thinking it might be worth reading. And it sooo was!!! Ann Bryant is one of the BEST authors ever! I would recommend this to you if you like Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson. I can't wait to get my hands on the other books in the series!!!
From Samantha The Actress
Hi Ann - I love your books - mostly the Silver Spires books!

I have only read one of the books so far (Secrets at Silver Spires) but I already know that I luv them they are amazin. I am going to read them all! Lol
