4.0 out of 5 stars Drama Girl, 9 Feb 2010

The St Jude's series is one of my favourite to come out of the UK, and it gets better with each book. There's character growth, positive messages, and a whole load of innocent teenage fun to be had with the girls from St Jude's boarding school.

Drama Girl is the most serious installment yet, dealing with important themes and issues such as eating disorders and self-esteem. I think it's so important to include these storylines in teen books, as it speaks to teenagers in a subtle yet informative way. Although most things wrap up happily at the end of the book, Carmen Reid never skirts around the importance of realising you have a problem, and being able to ask for help.

Friendship is what the St Jude's series is about, and that still has a strong presence in Drama Girl. Boys and brothers might get in the way, but the four girls -- Gina, Niffy, Amy and Min -- always support and come back to each other, and remember what's important. It's like Sex and the City for the younger generation, if it was set in Scotland and was actually funny.

Reid clearly knows her characters inside out, and knows what it's like to grow up in that environment. Her writing is humorous and easy to read, and makes the time fly by. I'd like to see more romance in the next book, and a little less emphasis on the girls and their bond. Three books in, I know they're best friends forever, and now I want to see how they cope when they're not the most important people in each other's lives. Can they survive that? Yes, I think they can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 1 Dec 2010
The St Judes series are one of my favourites. They are books that teenages can relate to and this one in particular really does pin point issues that effect teenage girls espically. This book focuses on friendship fallouts due to completely different reasons but all relivent to people the book is based on. It also in a way educates teenage girls on weight issues by showing the effects it can take on people. However the book isn't completely educational, there are plenty of laughs in it too. It is basically a guide to teenage life.
