Girls In Love (Girls #1) by Jacqueline Wilson

The Book

No. 98 - The BIG Read

Magda is tall and glamorous, Nadine is willowy and 'gothic' and Ellie, well, Ellie thinks she is unattractive and boring and that no boy will ever be interested in her. The three girls have been best friends 'forever' even though they don't seem to have much in common. But one thing they all want is a boyfriend!

Join the girls as they work out how to deal with all the surprises that being a teenage can bring. Sometimes sad, sometimes scary and often funny, don't miss this unputdownable and hugely popular trilogy for teenage readers by the award-winning Jacqueline Wilson.

My Opinion  4 STARS

Jacqueline Wilson really knows how to het into a young girls head. The book did have me giggling a few times at how thirteen year olds act. WELL past it now it was different seeing how things are, as you never really remember being that age.

The book focuses on three best friends Nadine, Magda and our narrator Ellie. We get the issues of growing up, step moms, pesky siblings and the issue of boyfriends. 

It was a laugh reading as an adult remembering how awkward that age is as things change from ugh boys, to giggling about them and wishing you too had a boyfriend and being jealous that your friend had one when you didn't.

It also shows the friendship that the girls have created and that even though you can fight at times, a true best friend will always forgive you.
