I feel even if I re read this over and over I would cry over and overfeel even if I re read this over and over I would cry over and over This books main plot is around bullying and I was reading this at a time I was also getting bullied and feeling a lot of Jodie s emotions It was this book which helped me put a stop to my bullying and get tougher as I didn t want to be Jodie If you are wanting to read this for light reading or fun reading because its a children s book DON T this is up there with some of the saddest books I have read especially if you have a past with bullying This book is about 2 completly different sisters who stand up for each other Their mum and dad got a new job at a school and Jodiewho is the eldest sister is having a rough time while Pearlwho is the younger sisteris having a fab time with all her friendsOne day a terrible thing happens to Jodie I first read this book when I was ten years old and I loved it I had always like Jacueline Wilson books but that one was my favourite I read this book from cover to cover about five times when I was younger opening up that book when I couldn T fit in with the posh teenagers in her class Pearl is blossoming Maybe she doesn't need Jodie as much as she used to But Jodie needs her And when the school celebration of Firework Night comes around and a tragic event occurs Pearl realises uite how much she does need her big sister. To each other The mother in this story is doing her best for her children but to them she seems over protective snobbish and judgemental Yet to the boarding school children sent away from home she seems like a treasure of a mother As ever Wilson s indly eye doesn t shy away from unhappiness There is A Great Crisis In This great crisis in this and its fallout causes unimaginable pain But pain is a part of life and you can t pretend it doesn t exist I love Wilson for never trying to pretend And I love her too for trying to show that there is always a path through no matter how hard things seem Highly recommended for all girls aged nine or ten to early teens i read this book when i was on holiday when i was about 12 and i loved it it is probably the most memorable book i have read i was a massive Jacueline Wilson fan when i was younger and so by the time i started to read this i had already read what seemed like hundreds of her other books what surprised me with this book and what made it stand out from the rest is that it wasn t as predictable as most of Jacueline s other books The way she writes is lighthearted with plenty of description but not in any way confusing as you continue to read through the book there
