Quiet, cautious Pearl has always adored her bold, brash, bad big sister Jodie. When their parents get new jobs at a grand, fusty old boarding school, Melchester College, the girls have to move there - and when they arrive, things start to change. Jodie has always been the leader - but now it's Pearl who's making new friends. Jodie just seems to be getting into more and more trouble - arguing with Mum, scaring the little children, flirting with the gardener. She really doesn't fit in with the posh teenagers at the school. Pearl begins to wonder if she needs Jodie as much as she used to. But when Firework Night comes around and a tragic event occurs, Pearl realises quite how much Jodie means to her.

I read this book and I really enjoyed it!I couldn't put it down until I had finished it.
The ending was very sad :'( But it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page. I have not read any of Jaqueline Wilsons other books so i am not sure if it was one of her better ones. So I will end with this!
Here comes My Sister Jodie!!

Well, that's a pretty good book and I would definetely recommend it to pre-teens . Although it is well written and I really enjoyed the plot, I must say that I was kind of disappointed with the ending ...I'm not gonna spoil it ,but I really hoped it would end differently ...
Anyway, I've read many books by this author and in my opinion it wasn't one of the best she has written so I'm giving the book 3 stars out of 5.
"Intelligent and insightful look at family life and the unique bond that exists between siblings" The Bookseller "This is another absorbing story that pulls the reader into the life and minds of the characters so you almost feel you are living it with them. A unputdownable read" Primary Times "This is another winning formula from this former children's laureate" -- Jayne Howarth Birmingham Post "A beautifully told and moving story of sisters, friendship and teenage rebellion" Mid Devon Advertiser
