About this deal

it deals with lots of common issues many girls face in their teen years, and handles them in a funny, loving, heartwarming manner. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I did accidentally read a review that spoiled the whole book for me, so I didn't enjoy it as much as I think I would have. Girls in Tears wraps up Jacqueline Wilson's Girls quartet, continuing the story of Ellie and her best friends, Nadine and Magda. But they both know that Nadine's about to get into big trouble with an 'Internet date' and only the two of them together can save her.

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’. In short, Ellie finds Russell - her boyfriend - and Magda - her best friend - making out at a party. I just loved it I'm going to definitely get girls under pressure and girls in love and of course girls out late! Jacqueline Wilson's Girls In Tears is the fourth instalment in her successful Girls series, following the lives and loves of three buddies--Ellie, Magda and Nadine--each very different but each bound by an absolute bond of friendship.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.

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 ? 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 way. 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. Although it was classified as a children's book, because of the content I would say it is a young adult book.I mean, it is meant to be in a collection but if you read it on its own it’s just fine, as the story makes total sense as well, but if you want to you can read the first two books first, although I don’t feel it is necessary. And Nadine is fed up with the other two lecturing her about the dangers of meeting someone on the Internet - she thinks her online boyfriend sounds wonderful! I don’t think this gives young teenage girls a good idea of a health friendship and is very surprising from Jacqueline Wilson.

I know that its something of a cliche that all young people are obsessed with finding love but it would have been nice if the other layers of these books featured so prominently. Get caught up in the wonderfully engrossing world of these three teenage girls and their absorbing, convincing and entertaining lives and loves. 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. It’s a weird combination, and as a result I cringed inwardly several times when the girls would talk about sex/pressures from boys to take things ‘further’ etc. Russell is a jealous sex crazed maniac and yet somehow like she has always done with her friends, she’s willing to forget it all and start again despite in this case the clear warnings that his actions weren’t okay long before he tried to shag her supposedly unattractive friend.Nick Sharratt has written and illustrated many books for children and won numerous awards for his picture books, including the Sheffield Children's Book Award and the 2001 Children's Book Award.

I think its a really good way to explain to young girls that good looking and having a boy friend isn't everything! I read this to complete two parts of a 2018 reading challenge: finish a book series and read a young adult book. Why is goddess Ms Wilson encouraging young girls to get back with boys who patronise them, bully them into things they're not ready for and also make out with their best friends and then claim "but I was drunk" as an excuse. There's a subplot about her having a creepy online boyfriend and thankfully that's done right with the girls learning you never know who you can trust. This was probably the weakest out of the four books, just because it felt like the title and format of 'Girls Cry When.Magda's lost her pet and is desperately upset (though the others didn't even know she had a hamster! Every fight with a friend feels like the end of the world and every little problem feels like it’s never going to be resolved. 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? Ellie's romance is on its last legs, thanks to a persistent boyfriend, Nadine is "in love" with a boy she met on the Internet and is planning to go and meet him despite the other girls' insistence that things may not be quite as they seem, and Magda's hamster has died, leaving her less than happy with her friends' response to her grief.
