About this deal

It feels very juvenile, verging on condescending, for a novel aimed at 14-15 year olds, yet the subject matter itself straddles that line between being too ‘adult’. the publisher of this PAPERBACK book is Corgi The date of this copy is 2005 booksalvation have grade it as Good and it will be shipped from our UK warehouse This book is from the Series. this book is amazing for young teenagers it is perfect, there is laughing, crying and DRAMA of course, i would recommend this book to anyone between th age of 11 to 15. All the characters are comical stereotypes of teenage boys and girls (The girls are very emotional and cry and fall out a lot and the boys only talk about sex) and at the end of the book - at the end of the SERIES - she gets back together with the guy who repeatedly tried to pressure her into sex, passed her work off as his own, emotionally abused her and then cheated on her with her best friend.

When she gets there, it's a soft porn theater and the "boy" is an "old man" so luckly the other 2 girls had been spying on her and followed and they save her from the "pervy creeper".

As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her! And, as good as it is to portray teenagers being happy in relationships, I certainly don't like how the boys are characterised as only interested in sex. Jacqueline is one of the nation’s favourite authors, and her books are loved and cherished by young readers not only in the UK but all over the world. When this first came out in 2002, I was 16 years old and already considered myself ‘too old’ to read Jacqueline Wilson anymore - and if this writing is anything to go by, I certainly was.

As I got older though, I didn't appreciate her books as much but I still love the creativity and thought behind each one of them and I will remember them as a big part of my childhood. He tries to pressure Ellie into having sex before she’s ready, he tries to emotionally blackmail her into doing what he wants, he shames her, he steals her idea, speaks down to her, and kisses one of her best friends. This was probably the weakest out of the four books, just because it felt like the title and format of 'Girls Cry When. Then awakes and tries to leave only to stumble across her BeST friend making out and laying on top of her boyfriend on the stairs.The person I think I’ve always been angriest with is Nadine for that one last kick to the gut, choosing Magda. I still today recommend her books to younger girls I know, and I hope that they will find the same joy as I did while reading her books. This time, Ellie's infatuation with Russell threatens the trio's unbreakable bond, as the author delivers a message about friendship and first love in an easygoing, humorous tale filled with British slang.

More time could have been given to Nadine's Internet dating storyline, although this was possibly difficult to achieve when the books are written from Ellie's POV. Later it's revealed that Russell forced the kiss on Magda and she wasn't making out with him consensually. perfectly capturing the raw emotions her characters endure through their daily lives, while telling a darn good story that will leave readers asking, "How soon can we read the next one? Her books are great at getting children to really think about actions and their consequences, really opening the eyes of children to the world.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Wilson is great at making realistic characters that you can quickly come to term with, giving realistic reactions to events. I read this to complete two parts of a 2018 reading challenge: finish a book series and read a young adult book. One of Jacqueline’s most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. Although it was classified as a children's book, because of the content I would say it is a young adult book.

Another one of Russell's toxic traits is the way he completely plagiarises Ellie's original character and art style and uses it for an art competition, and compares it to Ellie adapting her late mother's original character into her own. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.I wonder if Ellie and Russel will ever get back together, will Ellie and Magda be friends again and will Nadine find mr wonderful she has bee looking for all her life ? Of course, it could just be something that annoys me as an adult but I do wish that the books were encouraging people to look beyond romance. It would have been nice if the conclusion was Ellie getting wise to this and ditching him for good, but no, she cries her eyes out, he draws her a stupid "whoops, I'm so sorry I invited you to a party and then got off with your best friend" picture and she goes running back to him. Magda suddenly has a pet (even though it wasn't mentioned before), Ellie suddenly holds her mother's Myrtle Mouse creation dear to her heart (even though it wasn't mentioned before), Ellie mentions she's come in before her friends for the first time ever (even though she came in before them in Girls Out Late) and everyone is downright horrible to one another.
