'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?".
