I strongly reccomend this book to anyone as it is full of inspiration and fun. That is what Jacqueline Wilson can do best with her books. I would especially reccomend this book to people the ages of 11-16.
I like the imagination that has been put into the characters, it sutis them because of the sort of situations that they are in.
When anyone comes to reading this b ...more
THE ONLY DOWN POINT THAT I CAN THINK OF IN THE BOOK IS THAT IT'S toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo SHORT :0( :-(
Her books are great at getting children to really think about actions and their consequences, really opening the eyes of children to the world. Some of her books are sensitive reads yet they are all great at sending life messages to children.
I feel as though Wilson books are a must in the lives of young children, a way of opening their eyes to the real world in the right wa ...more

I liked reading it because when I read the lines I got images in my head like I could see it happening and I found that really cool because that doesn't happen to me most of the time only sometimes ...more
I love Floss' character and how she finally stands up for herself towards the end, and I especially like Susan's character - she seems kind of similar to me. Rhiannon is absolutely horrible person, but it's much needed for a story like this, she turns everything over with her annoying new friends Judy and Margot.

I really wished there was just one more chapter !
The ending felt very abrupt without it
But either way,
Jacqueline Wilson is one of my favorite childhood authors and her books have honestly changed me as not only a reader but also as a person.
Now that I'm older I was given this book by a younger friend and it was such a fantastic trip down memory lane.
Although it isn't one of my favorites from the author, I loved the characters, I loved the story and I love how she deals with heavy to ...more
