Book Description

Amy, Bella, Chloe, Daisy and Emily are friends at school and have their own Alphabet Club (just look at their initials!). Daisy is the newest member and is desperate to fit in, even though Chloe is very unfriendly to her at times.



When the girls begin planning sleepover parties for their birthdays, Daisy is dreading her own - she doesn't know what her friends will make of her rather special older sister . . .



Product Description

Amazon Review

New-girl-in-school Daisy faces up to familiar childhood dilemmas in Sleep-overs, a great book for younger readers written by the acclaimed, bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson.

Daisy is finding her feet with a new group of friends, slowly becoming "one of the gang" who take it in turns to have sleep-over parties. But with her own turn to play host fast approaching, Daisy is faced with the task of telling her new friends about her mentally and physically disabled older sister, and she is unsure how they will react. The spoilt Chloe, with her snide bullying tactics, presents a particular problem: she has been reluctant to let Daisy into the group, and this could give her just the excuse she needs...

As ever, Wilson combines superlative, on-the-nose storytelling with an intuitive accuracy that captures the essence of familiar childhood insecurities. Readers will laugh, cry and cringe their way through the pages of this outstanding little book as Wilson's trademark heroine wins the day. Ideal for newly confident readers who are looking for more of a challenge Sleep-overs is a cracking book for children aged 7 and over. --Susan Harrison

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleepovers by Jaqueline Wilson 16 July 2002
Format:Paperback
Daisy is a new girl at school. Sleepovers are the latest craze in school and everyone's having one. But Daisy has one problem. Her big sister Lily, can't speak or walk and Daisy is afraid everyone will poke fun at her.

Daisy's friend Emily is also best friends with Chloe, who likes to bully Daisy.
Daisy hasn't got a best friend but she wants Emily to be hers. When it is Daisy's turn for a sleepover, her mum invites Chloe and to back her up she invites Amy Bella and Emily too....Jaqueline Wilson is a very good writer and this is one of her best books. I had this book for my 9th birthday and read it in two days!!! It was great!

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely brilliant! 24 Sept. 2001
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent book which describes its characters well, and deals with the problems a child can face with a disabled sister. The descriptions of the sleepover parties are very good, especially the last one which is Daisy's, the main character. By Lottie, aged 11.
My mum would like to add a few words...
I love Jacqueline Wilson books as well, as she doesn't shy away from difficult subjects like disability. The characters in the book - and the way they relate to each other - are very believable, and the book has an upbeat and satisfying ending. I thought it was excellent, a great read for most kids and really inclusive for any who may have disabled brothers or sisters of their own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amelias Goods book review. 6 May 2008
Format:Paperback
I knew I was going to enjoy the book because I love Jacqueline Wilsons. I don't like Chloe because she is mean, but I like Daisy because she is nice to her friends. It is a little bit sad in places but also happy. It was very exciting. Amy and Daisy are best friends and Chloe and Emily are best friends but not for long. The book would be suitable for girls 7+. It is the best book to read. The story takes place at a school and at people's houses. The author good language like so-o-o-o-o and wonderful

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a fantastic book 8 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I thought it was an amazing book. It included a great deal of friendship,arguing and laughter. I highly enjoyed it because it is a book that you feel you don't want to put down and it has nice short chapters and it changes the theme every time so you don't stick on the same subject.
If there were 20 stars I would rank it 20 out of 20 but there are only 5. I recommend it to absolutely anyone, I hope if you read it and enjoy it as much as I did you will go on to read other Jacqueline Wilson books
I THINK THEY'RE GREAT!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Review on Sleepovers by Jacqueline Wilson 22 Nov. 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
I think Sleepovers is a great book! Daisy (the main character)is being bullied by Chloe, who shows off about everything she can. Daisy wants to be best friends with Emily, who is best friends with Chloe but she soon regrets it and wishes she was best friends with Daisy.
It is great because, I think it shows people what bullying is like (as it is written in the first person), and why you shouldn't bully.
This book has brilliant pictures, and is good for girls aged 7-10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good!!! 8 July 2006
Format:Paperback
I read this when i was about 10 and loved it. It's a sweet book and is a good example of how being cruel to people is not a good thing. I wouldn't read it again as i'd probably find it too childish. so i'd reccomend it for 8-11 year olds.
