No. 139 - The BIG Read
Ellie, Magda and Nadine are back - but they're not very happy! Ellie's glorious romance with Russell is teetering on the rocks. Magda's lost her pet and is desperately upset (though the others didn't even know she still had a hamster!). And Nadine is fed up with the other two lecturing her about the dangers of meeting someone on the Internet. She thinks her e-mail boyfriend sounds wonderful! Buckets of tears are wept and hundreds of tissues sniffled into. Can the girls' friendship survive these testing times? A superb fourth instalment in the GIRLS series, following GIRLS IN LOVE, GIRLS UNDER PRESSURE and GIRLS OUT LATE. A perfect read for older fans from the best-selling author, Jacqueline Wilson.
My Opinion 3 STARS
This book is about three best friends who are coping with boyfriends, jealousy and growing up.
Ellie and her friends deal with an internet boyfriend who seems too good to be true, cheating, and best friends that betray them when alcohol and the death of pets are involved.
We also see that even though you may not be best friends with someone at the moment you will aways get together with them to help save your other friends along the way.
The book is good for those over 11, but as an adult I just found reading it funny. I certainly would not like to be in my early teens again. I don't think I could handle being a teenager in today's world, let alone going through growing up and the love/hate relationship with your friends.
