Book Description

3 Jun 2002

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 distinctly unfriendly to her at times. Throughout Daisy's first year at the school, the girls plan ever-more elaborate sleepover parties for their birthdays. Daisy is dreading the time when her birthday comes round as she doesn't know what her friends will make of sleeping over at her home, with her rather special older sister...

A superb handling of both the intricacies of young, female friendship and the joys and problems of having an older sister with learning disabilities, from our most accomplished and bestselling author.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Has all the Jacqueline Wilson hallmarks of humour, good sense and a profound realism (Independent)

Jacqueline Wilson, whose books just keep getting better, always puts children at the centre and is also an expert on Tweens (The Times)

Highly entertaining (TES)

As ever, Wilson is thought-provoking rather than preachy (Guardian)

In this funny and touching story by the fantastic Jacqueline Wilson, young readers are encouraged to explore the worries of bullies, disabilities and making new friends. (Waterstones Books Quarterly)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleepovers by Jaqueline Wilson 16 July 2002
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 Sep 2001
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
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 one more chapter please 4 Oct 2001
Format:Audio Cassette
I read this book straight through to my daughter 7 and my son 10.
It didn't take much to persuade me, as I was hooked too.
We all felt for Daisy in her dilemma for a sleep-over birthday party.
We booed at Chloe and cheered at the surprising end.
I'm off to buy more books by this fabulous author.
Buy it! We're sure you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a fantastic book 8 Jan 2002
By A Customer
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

4.0 out of 5 stars A Review on Sleepovers by Jacqueline Wilson 22 Nov 2009
A Kid's Review
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.
