"Na jeden šialený magický okamih som si myslela, že ma chce pobozkať..."

Štrnásťročná Prue a jej mladšia sestra Grace nechodia do školy, pretože ich konzervatívny a prísny otec vzdeláva doma. No keď otca po mozgovej príhode odvezú do nemocnice, Prue si konečne vyskúša, aké to je, keď má človek trocha slobody.

V škole však zistí, že po toľkých rokoch strávených doma sa nevie

I read some Jacqueline Wilson as a child and LOVED them (mainly Tracey Beaker), and after I saw that Maddie and Bee on BookTube have been talking about her books over the last few months, I decided to give her books a crack as an adult. So I went on her website, unsure of where to start and I decided why not just start at the beginning? Her website listed Love Lessons as her first published work (that was still available and in print) so I rented the ebook out from my library and OH MY LAN

First read, May 3, 2010: This gets four stars because, yes, I really liked it, as in I enjoyed reading it and didn't want to put it down. It was well written and the characters were very well developed. HoWeVeR: The "relationship" between Prudence and Rax is not very believable. Prue is 14 years old and acts even younger in a lot of ways since she was so isolated for much of her life. I can't quite get into the teacher's head here. Is he having a mid-life crisis? Is he a perv? What's up? I like ...more

I read this book when I was in my early teens and loved it. Re-reading it now at 18 I got a really big shock. Much more wise about the world (although still not very) than I was back then, I can see that this is one messed up book with worrying morals considering the age group it's directed at. It basically sends the message that there is nothing wrong with an older teacher reciprocating feelings a FOURTEEN year old student has for him. And not just any old student, but a vulnerable one who has ...more

Jacqueline Wilson is one of my absolute favourite contemporary authors. I love the way that she focusses on the kind of children who often are ignored in junior fiction and the way that she so cleverly captures the way that young people think and perceive the world. I can't love this book, though. I think it sends a dangerous message to highly impressionable readers, and I was extremely disappointed that it was written and published in this form.

I will go into my qualms and the reasoning behind

Book covers like this one put me off. I don’t like them because they scream ‘Hey little girlie, you know you want me. How could you not? After all, I’m pink and I’ve got a big red heart. Buy me!’ However, Jaqueline Wilson is an author who is well regarded and despite never having read any of her books I was interested in the subject – teacher/pupil relationship – and I wanted to see how she tackled it.

I am not sure what age the book is meant to be for. The subject matter suggests young adult but

Just finished this book for the second time. The first time I read it I was 12 years old and I was left unsatisfied with the ending. Now, at 16 years old, here is my opinion.

Prue and her sister Grace have been educated at home by their controlling, super-strict father all their lives. They know they are different to 'normal' girls but their attempts to find out what being an ordinary teenager are like. But when Dad has a stroke and ends up in hospital, Prue suddenly discovers what it's like to have a little freedom.

This book was hideously boring and seemed to drag on forever. Jacqueline Wilson is a really talented writer, and I've enjoyed other books of hers, espec

The book was good but I wanted Rax to dump his wife for Pure . Lol I sound evil when I say it but it's the truth!
I'm not reviewing this just like I didn't with the Louise Rennison Books.
However this is not what remembered, and I found some parts so uncomfortable to read, so sadly I didn't enjoy it as much as what I originally once did, however I finished this in two days...

so did my plan work? Am I out of this slump?!

Wilson expertly tackles difficult issues, ranging from divorce, domestic violence, bullying and bereavement. In 'Love Lessons' she approaches perhaps the most controversial of topics, that of a forbidden student-teacher relationship. Prue is just fourteen, but is drawn dangerously close to her handsome, outgoing art teacher, Rax.

Prue's home life is challenging, to say the least, although I found parts of it to be overly exaggerated which took away from the overall believablilty of the book. Her

Fifteen-year-old Prue and her sister Grace have been educated at home by their controlling, ultra-strict father almost all their lives. When Dad is suddenly rushed to hospital, unable to move or speak, Prue at last discovers what it's like to have a little freedom.

Sent to school for the first time in her life, Prue finds it unexpectedly difficult to settle in. The only person she can talk to is her kindly and handsome young art teacher, Rax. When she starts babysitting for Rax's children, Prue f
Jacqueline Wilson occupied a huge amount of my pre-goodreads era childhood reading.
I constantly read and reread her books, especially Double Act fyi, and this one was odd one out in that I can't remember where and when I came across it.

So fast forward many years and I had the opportunity for a reread because my uni friend and I got to chatting about dear ol' Wilson, and she promised me, she'd get me one of her copies and tada I was presented with Love Lessons.

It's no secret this has a lot to do

I read this book way back in 2008 when I first bought it. I was in the mood for books that have really girly, high school crush settings and the cover instantly caught my eye. I re-read this not long ago and have a review I'd like to write down.

Love Lessons is basically about a girl in her early teens named Prue being thrown into the "normal" school system after being homeschooled the whole of her life after her slightly (more like totally by my standards) dysfunctional dad experieces a severe s

So, I read this book a while ago, but I really enjoyed it. In typical Jacqueline Wilson style, it deals with an oddball girl and her relationships with her Art teacher, her sister and parents.

Prudence can be an irritating character, but I've read worse, so I didn't really care about her depiction. She's a freak, so I can understand why Rax (the art teacher) would sympathise with this lonely girl. It had a few funny moments, but if you're expecting a sexy, panty-ripping fantasy involving sex, sex
So I'm twenty-four years old, and I'm still a little obsessed with Jacqueline Wilson and her books. Yet, I'm weirdly okay with that. She has been my go to author since I was a little girl, and I haven't read one of her books that hasn't made me smile.

Now, Love Lessons, I bought recently on Kindle (although I have the hardback), just because it is one of my all time favourite books. I read this last night and I felt as if I was a teenager sat in bed reading it once again. The story, the writing,

Read this when I was about 12, I think. And I adored it and thought it was super romantic. Now I'm 20, I'm wondering if I'd feel the same way. May have to reread this at some point and see, but for now, I'll stick with the rating I would've given it when I read it last.

I've read and loved Jacqueline Wilson's books since childhood, and have probably read and thoroughly enjoyed almost everything she has produced (despite being long out of childhood now!). I recently finished her latest novel Clover Moon and thought it was great, proving she has lost none of the ability that she has always been possessed of. However, Love Lessons proves to me to be the most lacking of her work so far.

The story follows Prue, a girl who has previously only ever been homeschooled, a

I first read this book when I was about 12. At that point in time I found it really interesting and read it super quickly, but obviously I couldn't understand it as I can now when I am a bit older. Last week I was looking through my books and decided to take it out. After reading a chapter, I couldn't stop reading. I felt like now that I am actually Prue's age, I can much better relate to the things she feels as I have felt some of them too. Out of the many teenage romance books that I have read ...more

An unusual story that deals with teen crushes and what happens when a teacher crosses the line.
Prue and Grace have to go to school after their father becomes ill and cannot home tutor them anymore.
Prue, lonely and unhappy falls hard for her art teacher Mr. Raxberry and suddenly her feelings are reciprocated...
Lots of moral themes and social issues going on but that's what gives it a unique slant, the author is bold to tackle such controversial issues and also to aim it at the audience that refle

This book... I don't even know where to start. I first read this when I was 15 years old and the story of Prue & Rax has remained with me ever since. I swear I don't go a SINGLE day without thinking about them and everything that happened to them in this book. By the amount of reviews this book has already received, I'm guessing you can pretty much figure out the story. Prue has lead a very isolated life and is thrown into a completely crazy and bewildering world which she doesn't have much ...more

I'm having trouble rating this book. Jacqueline Wilson's writing is fabulous as usual and the book's premise is quite interesting. Now, I get that Prue is the narrator of the story and hence everything in the story was only told from her point of view, and is obviously coloured/embellished in that way. However, the way her and Rax's relationship was handled left me deeply disturbed.

Generally I am a big fan of Jacqueline Wilson's books because they are easy reads and rather entertaining. I was left wanting with this book.

I really enjoyed the chapter illustrations and it was very easy to get through.

In the book the mother refers to the headteacher as "she" but then seems surprised to find out that it is a woman. The blurb say Prue is 15 but she is actually 14. I think that the main character is far too young to even be thinking of having a romance with a teacher. I think th

I found this book really enjoyable until the affair... Why does Rax who is a teacher kiss a 14 year old?!!
I would of enjoyed this book a lot more if Rax did the right thing and said to Prue " no I can't kiss you,It's wrong"
Not start an affair!
What does this teach young girls? It's ok to fancy your teacher and make a move?
Jacqueline Wilson has got this story all wrong especially when Rax and Prue get caught and noting is done about it! If this was real life Rax will be in all the papers then in

its a little weird. i mean the relationship between Prue and her teacher is weird she is weird. Some people think that is cute well its not is weird, cute is when a teenager falls in love with an singer or actor to like someone and not follow them around and mess with their family.And what about him her teacher he is even more weird,liking a girl who has 16 years.
Usually don't read Jackie's books but this was recommended to me.
Well laughs, especially when Prue writhes all over Rax's bed. I just wanted to say "Girl, you never gonna be Mrs Rax". Had no sympathy for these two lost 50s inspired souls :)
However, surprisingly well written. But I felt Jackie could have delved a lot more into the forbidden aspect of student/teacher fantasy.

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.
