One of my most favourite authors ever is Jacqueline Wilson. I haven’t really read that many of her books since I started secondary school, but the other day I picked up some of my faves and had a skim through. I suddenly remembered why I loved her so much, she writes in such an engaging way. The stories and characters are ones that every young girl can relate to.
One of her best books for me is ‘My Sister Jodie’. It is so emotional, especially towards the end.
The story is so good. Jodie and Pearl are sisters and the best of friends. One day their parents reveal that they are moving to Melchester College, because their mum got a job as the cook and their dad as the caretaker. It is a huge boarding school in the middle of the countryside. Pearl immediately befriends Harley, a boy older than her with a love for badgers. But Jodie is badly behaved doesn’t fit in with all the posh, clever kids. One cold bonfire night, something tragic happens that ruins their family… But is there light at the end of the tunnel for Pearl and her parents?
This is definitely one of my favourite books ever….Read it!
