This book is an amazing book full of different feelings in different parts of the story, for example happiness, sadness, intelligence and freaky...Jaqueline Wilson is my favourite writer because some of her stories are happy some sad and some a mixture. My favourite passage is when Ellie is saved by Dan, they are all at a party, and these drunk guys come in and the biggest one grabs hold of Ellie because she is sitting down and starts talking to her saying 'now you want to dance dont you'but Dan loves Ellie and keeps telling him to get of her girl friend, but the big one says to one of the other to deal with Dan so he punches him but Dan is holding red squash so as the boy punched him he threw the red squash at himself and it looked like her had been stabed!!! That made them run away...

This is the best book I have ever read. It is about two best friends called Ellie and Nadine who have been best friends since they were little, and they always stick together. But when one of them gets a boyfriend their friendship goes horribly wrong. I think this book should be recomended to girls aged 11-16. It is really funny and I think if you buy it you will definately enjoy it.

I really loved this book so much I could not put it down! It is all about three girls: Magda(the superior one with lots of boys very much in love with her), Nadine( the gothic type with a very pushy boyfriend) and Ellie( who really wants a boyfriend and ends up making -up a story that she got one during the holidays, even though,the boy is real, but is a big geek.) I am sure you will all love this story as it captures the feelings of the characters and describes teenage girls lives very well. BUY IT RIGHT NOW EVERYONE!!

Girls in love is about 3 girls (Nadine, Ellie and Magda) who don't do very well with boyfriends.I liked the bit where Ellie told Magda and Nadine she had a boyfriend but she hadn't. I have also read Girls under pressure which is brilliant and I can't wait till Girls out late comes out. I have read a lot of Jacqueline Wilsons books which include the lottie project, bad girls, double act and The story of Tracey beaker.

I have read this book over and over. I think it is brilliant. Some books are really boring and sensible, but this book wasn't all SENSIBLE, it was cool, it had funny,sad and rude bits in. It related to real life. If you havn't read this book, then you should, its all about life, growing up, the depressing bits and thehappy bits.I can't wait to see what happenes next to Ellie, Nadine and Magda in Girls under pressure

I read this because a) it was on the BBC big reads top 100 books you should read, and I have nearly completed the list, and b) because my eleven year old is going through a massive Jacqueline Wilson phase and this series of books is currently her favourite, so she begged me to try it out, knowing that I do not like JW's writing at all, but constantly trying to convert me. This is not the first of Wilson's works I've read, and given the persistence of my daughter it won't be the last either, but I am afraid to say I am about as far away from converting to loving her as I was when I picked up the first book of hers I read (Dustbin Baby) all those years ago.

I am too old for all this. The trials of Ellie and her two best friends seem mildly horrifying at best and at worst utterly miserable, but in a sordid and different way to how it was when I was tackling boys and puberty in the dim and distant Nineteen Eighties. It was bad enough going through it then, revisiting it with more sex and drug references now is not making me any fonder.

I am sure that if you are a die hard JW fan this will ring all the right bells for you. Sadly not for me.

This book is absolutely superb! It is funny as well as realistic, although sometimes you feel so sorry for Ellie and her bad luck, you just want to meet her and comfort her. Sometimes you get to the point when you nearly cry!! I am reading the second in the sequence, 'Girls Under Pressure' which is Fantastic too. I reccomend it to any girl between the ages of 9 and 14. AMAZING!

"Girls in Love" by Jaqueline Wilson was a really good book and easy to read. It was good how she wrote about the characters feelings, so you knew what they were going through. The story line was really true to life and quite funny at some bits. The illistrations were good and helped you understand the story. I hope the 2 follow up books will be just as good!

As every other book I have read from Jacqueline, it is funny, exciting, and sometimes you feel sorry for the character, Ellie. Jacqueline obviously remembers when she used to fancy and dream about boys. She describes the characters very well, and expresses their feelings. I felt like I was actually in the story myself, just what everyone wants in a book.
