Superachiever Daisy Meredith wins a scholarship to Grangewood School for Young Ladies, the first girl from a poor background to be admitted to the school for reasons of ability alone. She soon undergoes a a number of tribulations caused mainly by the snobbish non-acceptance of her peers, resulting in our heroine almost getting expelled.

As the title suggests, it all comes right for our plucky heroine, being "honourable and straight in all things", with Daisy saving the lives of sneaky Monica and toady Sybil, her chief tormenters, discovering the long lost treasure of Grangewood and discovering that the gardener is, in fact, not only her thought-dead father, but also, by a twist of fate, the rightful owner of Grangewood School.
