Product Description

Amazon Review

Jacqueline Wilson's Girls In Tears is the fourth instalment in her successful Girls series, following the lives and loves of three buddies--Ellie, Magda and Nadine--each very different but each bound by an absolute bond of friendship.

As ever, things are not running so smoothly for the girls. Ellie's romance is on its last legs, thanks to a persistent boyfriend, Nadine is "in love" with a boy she met on the Internet and is planning to go and meet him despite the other girls' insistence that things may not be quite as they seem, and Magda's hamster has died, leaving her less than happy with her friends' response to her grief. Each of them is shedding tears (rivers of them, in fact) and none of them can quite get to grips with the idea that their all-time best mates seem to be so absorbed in their own problems that communication between them is fast breaking down...

Jacqueline Wilson, award-winning queen of tell-it-as-it-is children's literature, hits the teen spot with this straightforward, highly enjoyable novel, adding further flesh to the bones of the characters her loyal readers will have come to love in Girls In Love, Girls Under Pressure and Girls Out Late. She tackles the everyday issues that really count (school, boys, family life, friendship, bad hair, imperfect bodies...) perfectly capturing the raw emotions her characters endure through their daily lives, while telling a darn good story that will leave readers asking, "How soon can we read the next one?".

Age 11 and over. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Girls in Tears is the fourth (and hopefully not final) installment of Jacqueline Wilson's 'Girls' series and again focuses its attention on the lives, loves and laughs of best-pal trio, Ellie, Magda and Nadine.
In this latest installment, things are not going very swimmingly for our favourite lasses. Ellie's boyfriend Russell is being a pain in the behind, Nadine is acting like a careless air-head, Magda is upset over the death of her hamster, and Ellie's dad and step mum are at logger heads. While the book of course includes all the usual elements from previous 'Girls' installments (worries about looks, popularity, being cool, keeping your friends etc) all the major themes seem to come to a head in this latest one and it is to dramatic affect. You find out more about Ellie's problems at home, the real extent of her relationship with Russell and, yes, you even find out the real extent of her friendship with Nadine and Magda. This book is notable for being the first time the trio has a major falling out, and this makes for refreshing if not uncomfortable reading. I for one always found the trio's 'all for one and one for all' fondling to be a little bit far fetched throughout the series, having been a fourteen year old girl myself and knowing first hand how often young ladies - even self proclaimed 'bezzie mates' - bicker, argue and 'break friends'. The girls truly fall out in spectacular style for a number of reasons which I won't give away, but let's just say that Nadine is acting even more crazy, bitchy and angsty than usual, and Magda's boy-hungry antics finally get the better of her, to the cost of one of her best friends...
This is an eye opening fourth installment and does not disappoint.

this book gets right inside trhe head of a 12-year-old girl, making her troubles seem more comforted. When i was reading this book i seriously couldn't put it down! i read it within 3 hours and i wish it hadnt gone so quickly, i wish i could have just read it all my life! Ellies troubles with Russell make yourself feel secure and safe, knowing Ellie is right by you. Ellies friends, Magda and Nadine show what good friends can really be like (even though they didn't show it at first) and give you a real sense that you are her friend too. You feel like you are always by her side and you can see Magda's and Nadine's point of view as well as Ellies. I was starting to believe she was a real person and coming into my life! Whenever i'm feeling sad now, i think of Ellie, and what she would do and it puts a great smile across MY face!! Truly a wonderful follow-up to Girls under pressure, girls out late and girls in love!

Format: Hardcover
This is a typical Jacqueline Wilson book. Fast moving and easy to read. Once you start you won't want to stop. Jacqueline's style of writing in the first person allows difficult and personal issues to be tackled in an unembarrasing way. Personally I feel that dispite the young looking packaging this is a book for at least 11+. Another best seller I'm sure!

Format: Hardcover
If you've been waiting like me for the 4th book of the Girls serious than you'll be pleased with this. The book lives up to your expetations and has more tears and laughs than the others. It has the "only one more page" book where by the end you've read about ten. You are left on the edge of your seats! Elle, Magda and Nadine, are hitting the age where boys and now Internet are the best things, but they get in the way of the three girls friendship and they become to argue. Elle's relationship with her boyfriend hits the rocks, and with other trouble amoungst the situation on people lying about who they are on the internet, it makes the story become real and alive and makes you think about what your doing and that this could happen too you.
If your over 13 than this is the book for you, if boys and the net are part of your everyday life than this is the book for you. And if you just want a story which will keep your reading on and to have a good laugh and cry then Girls in tears is for you.
