Daisy is a new girl at school and really wants some friends! When she meets a few girls that are good company and have regular sleepovers at each others house, things are going well until Chloe begins to use snide remarks towards Daisy because they both want Emily as there best friend. This makes Daisy conscious as she is part of the gang now and having a sister that’s disable that cannot walk or talk would only gives Chloe more of a reason to open her mouth and be mean. It’s great to have seen ...more

Sleep-overs is a tense political thriller full of intrigue, suspense and blackmail. If this book had been written for adults about adults it would be littered with dead bodies and it would probably end up as a Hollywood blockbuster directed by Brian DePalma or Martin Scorsese. However it is not. It was written for children, girls particularly so there is no body count. That does not mean the story line is soft, pink and cuddly.

Daisy arrives at a new school and makes friends with a group of four

Even though I am 34 and this book is meant for 9 year olds, I really enjoyed it. Somehow Jacqueline Wilson manages to describe the experience of being a little girl so perfectly and realistically that it all came flooding back how horrible little girls can be to each other, but also how fun it was at times. The sad part is that even when we grow up we still see people acting like Chloe, the horrible little girl in this book. We still have friends that we don't really want to be friends with, and ...more

Wilson is great at making realistic characters that you can quickly come to term with, giving realistic reactions to events.

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

Aside from her fears concerning her sister's disability, Daisy also feels as tho

Sleepovers must be a relatively new book from Jacqueline Wilson because as I child I never heard of the book and I must have read every other book of hers, I think that the themes covered in her books are suitable for children in today’s society. The themes are transferable and depending how it is used they can be brought in to nearly every level of a primary school. The story is based around Amy, Bella, Chloe, Daisy and Emily are friends at school and have their own Alphabet Club (look at their ...more

ceritanya sederhana. cerita anak-anak :) tapi nggak nyangka bahwa tokoh kakak daisy di sini adalah anak yang luar biasa. Dan daisy yg awalnya nggak begitu suka sama Lily (kakaknya) kemudian malah harus berterimakasih karena salah satu temannya yang jahat jadi 'terkalahkan' berkat Lily :))

percayalah, kisahnya sederhana banget kok. Cukup menghibur pas lagi nggak pengin baca buku sastra berat gini.

All five members of the club, have a sleepover party for their birthdays'. But Daisy is worried about her sleepover and introducing her new friends to her family.

I really enjoyed this book as it portrays young children's ever-changing friendship groups. Daisy describes her inner turmoil over her relationship with her disabled si

My 10 year old self: This is another Jacqueline Wilson book, and this author tends to write about real life, bulling and friendship, and this is just that. This book contains many sleepovers, bullying, and hard desitions. Emily is wondering whether or not to have a sleepover with her friends, what will they think of her sister? And what about Chloe?

I'm 30, and I never read any of Jacqueline Wilson's books as a kid, but since several of them are on the BBC Big Read list, I thought I would check them out. I understand that Wilson writes a lot of children's books that feature families that don't fit into a cookie cutter mold, and I think that's wonderful. In this book, the heroine has a sister with an intellectual disability of some kind, and is scared of exposing her circle of friends (and one bully) to that sister at her birthday sleepover. ...more

This book involves a group of friends named 'The Alphabet club' which was formed by Daisy. Her friends are Amy, Bella, Chloe and Emily. They each take it in turns to have sleepovers for their birthdays and Daisy is afraid of what her friends may think when they come to her house. She is worried about Chloe as she is mean to Daisy and makes many attempts to make her feel unwelcome and to hurt her feelings. Daisy is afraid of her friends not understanding and being judgemental to her sister Lily w

This is the book that got me into reading, it's such a good first book I'd recommend to younger readers. Jacqueline Wilson is a genius and really I owe her for getting me into reading and what made me passionate for English. I am starting an English literature degree in September and Jacqueline Wilson is one of my inspirations for choosing this degree

Dame Jacqueline Wilson (a very deserved title!) is, in my opinion, the best contemporary children's writer. She writes perfectly, in content, theme, style and accessibility for children from aged 6 to 13 (ish - of course this varies among children). She writes flawlessly for children, I could not find a single fault.

She is never patronizing and introduces young people to important life issues such as love, poverty, friendship, adolescence, separated parents, illnesses and so much more, in a mann

I read this as part of my Big Read list, although there shouldn't really need to be an excuse to read Jacqueline Wilson's work. Although aimed at young children, they're still so fun to read. Delving right to the heart of problems and not shying away from difficult subjects, it's no wonder Wilson has such an enduring popularity.

This time, a girl is a newcomer in a group of friends and tries to fit in. They celebrate their birthdays with a series of sleepovers, and our hero, Daisy, worries about

Five little girls decide that for their birthdays they are all going to have a sleepover. They are the alphabet girls as their name go from A to E. Amy, Bella, Chloe, Daisy and Emily. Daisy is our MC and she likes Emily better, but Chloe is the mean girl of the group, the leader and the bossy-boots.

Chloe makes it clear to Daisy that she does not like her, however it is always behind the others backs until its Emilys party and her own, which she initially does not invite her to.

All five of the gi

Sleepovers by Jacqueline Wilson

Sleepover is a story about a group of five friends who have sleepovers for their birthday. The main focus is on Daisy, who is new to the school and also has a disabled sister. The book tackles some very good issues from bullies to acceptance of people who are different as well as changing relationships and different home lives.

I have never read any Jacqueline Wilson before and was unaware of the issues she tackles with in her stories. I did like this book due to th

Looved it ! ! ! !

I really like Jacqueline Wilson and her stories. My earliest memories of books was me in my bed with my mama reading stories to me. mostly, I made her read Jacqueline's books. I still have the habit, it seems :)

I love this book it always makes feel excited!
when a new school girl called Daisy comes to her new school she joins a club with some of her friends. They all have sleepovers for their birthday parties. But when it soon comes to Daisy's sleepover she gets worried...
Alison Condliffe
Really enjoyed this book which captured all the joy, trials and tears of sleep overs. Had added issues of the older sister with disabilities and bullying. Very likable, believable characters, especially Daisy.
Verity
Re-visited one of my favourite childhood authors.
Jacqueline Wilson is an amazing author tackling serious issues in her stories, while at the same time making them fun to read.
Janet
This is a good story for a young person who is dealing with fitting in with new school friends. The protagonist, Daisy, has found new friends at her new school but one is a spoiled, bullying control freak. The other girls are afraid to cross her. In the end she gets her comeuppance. Daisy also has a special needs sister. This story does a good job of showing her love for her sister while still feeling the social pressure of having her sister meet her friends. Of course, in the end, the three gir ...more

A firm favourite of Jacqueline Wilson's, and after reading it, I really wanted to go to a sleepover. I went to a few, but none were as interesting as this book
Yvonne
My daughter gave me this book to read, I quite enjoyed it and remembered what it was to be 11 again. And my thoughts on sleepovers are now reaffirmed. Well written.
Demi
I just love these books! they are the best i really do enjoy reading them! this book is really one of the best books i have ever read!
Rania Ajjan El Hadid
A good story, it shows you the true meaning of friendship and a small insight into having a disabled sister through the eyes of her sister
Ursula Clancy

Daisy

Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first ‘novel’ when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. 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 af ...more
