A good book for teenagers - aimed more at girls than boys, with an honest story about relationships, status, hideous embarrassment and BOYS. It didn't wow me quite as much as the other books I've read by the same author, but I'm not the target audience and I'd happily get it for those who are. ( )

Aww, what a sweet book of innocence and shattered innocence. Of love and heartbreak. I felt a connection with each of the characters in this book and it was possibly one of the most important books of my early teens. If you are between 11 and 15/16 then you should read this book. A very cute read! ( )

I like this book because it is very teenage. For Teenageres it is likelyto be liked. Mostly to the people who have been in love or are in love. BEAUTIFUL!

More from Jacqueline Wilson, same old same old, I'm sorry but I don't find her books have much substance. They are popular because they are easy to read, and don't require much thinking, which is fine, I don't have a problem with children reading this sort of thing, as long as they are also reading something that has more to it and that can stretch their imagination a bit more.

This is the first book in the GIRLS quartet. It's british, and funny, and very short. I liked it.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 044022957X, Mass Market Paperback)

Ellie is starting ninth grade and she's dead set on finding herself a boyfriend. Her two best friends seem to have all the luck in the love department, but our heroine will stop at nothing to join the ranks. Even if it means pretending her 12-year-old pen pal is her gorgeous, head-over-heels-in-love beau. Naturally, chaos ensues, as it always does when one tries to live a lie, but with Ellie's dry, self-deprecating wit and the antics of her boy-crazy buddies, this is sure to be a year to remember.

Jacqueline Wilson, prolific author of more than 50 books, several of which have been short-listed or runners-up for the Carnegie Medal, pens a hilarious and authentic story about girls in love (or something like it). Readers will eat up the clever wordplay and painfully funny subplots, and will eagerly anticipate the other titles in the sequence, Girls Under Pressure and Girls Out Late. (Ages 12 to 16) --Emilie Coulter
