Back cover copy

Reasons to read my book, 1–9: 1. It’s the story of three girls in Year Nine 2. You’ll learn all sorts of secrets about me 3. Ditto my best friend for ever Nadine 4. Ditto my equally best friend Magda 5. You can see if your nine all-time heroes/heroines match up with mine 6. You can squirm at my most embarrassing moments (there are quite a few) 7. You’ll definitely laugh (mostly at me) 8. You might even cry a bit too (I know I will) 9. You’ll possibly find out more about BOYS (real and maybe not-so real . . .) ‘Delightful’ Observershow more

Our customer reviews

I read this book over 2 years ago when I has just turned 12. I literally found a love for reading from these books. If I could recommend any book to a girl at that age it would be the Jacqueline Wilson teen collection. I read Kiss, girls out late, girls in love, girls under pressure and girls in tears. I found each and every book hard to put down.show more
