About this deal

With hard working parents who are proud of her achievements, she still dreams of a life like Nina's. Though this deals with heavier topics than the books I read when I was a teenager, it still has that classic Jacqueline Wilson feel. But I don't think there's anything wrong with happy endings, especially in books for younger audiences. With hard working parents who are proud of her achievements, she still dreams of a life like Nina’s. Wilson mi ha sempre stupito per la delicatezza con cui scriveva di certi argomenti in libri che erano per ragazzine intorno ai dieci, dodici anni.

Glad there is also an afterword on consent, because it may also empower readers to created firm boundaries to protect themselves and their well being. Jacqueline is also a great reader, and has amassed over 20,000 books, along with her famous collection of silver rings. I think teenagers reading this book will be shocked and surprised at the treatment young mothers received in this era, both from professionals and their own families. As always Jaqueline has this innate ability to weave an uncomfortable topic into a story that can be understood and felt by all. I was surprised when I so easily slipped back into the world of Jacqueline Wilson at the ripe old age of 29.

As well as winning many awards for her books, including the Children’s Book of the Year, Jacqueline is a former Children’s Laureate, and in 2008 she was appointed a Dame. The tiny illustrations that accompany the beginning of chapters remind readers the tale follows a young girl, as Laura’s advanced literacy enables readers to forget her youth.

Wilson's writing style is warm and despite the heavy subject matter there are lots of charming and humorous moments throughout the story. The disgust and judgement piled onto her from relatives and acquaintances made me empathise with anyone who actually had to go through something like this back in the day. It's 1960 and Laura is a fourteen year old girl from a poor area that goes to the local grammar school. This is set in an era that she was familiar with (her published journals were a great read) and tells the story of how young, unwed mothers were treated by society.Wilson did an excellent job of framing Laura to the reader, so when the encounter with Leon happens, you truly believe she had no idea of what had just occurred.
