Not for younger readers!

Be careful! My daughter is in year 5 and read this book. I know Jaqueline Wilson is to be congratulated for writing about difficult issues, but I do think this book and her other "Teenage" books should be more clearly described in the "blurb". This book contains descriptive passages of bulimic girls making themselves sick, of their sexual experiences with boys. It also contains some graphic imagery of food being likened to male parts. Great if you're 13+ and certainly up to Wilson's usual excellent standard of sparky characters, solid friendships and descriptive writing.
