I like nearly all JWs book and this one is in m top ten favorites. I'd really recommend reading this, my favourite part being the time reading about when she was growing up.
This was an engaging book, i also liked reading about Pat, a girl who Jaqueline Wilson knew in school.
I also liked reading about her choices of books that she liked, including Nancy and Plum, which i have read for myself and enjoyed.
Overall, i found this a great book, i liked how JWilson said what she thought, giving her true opinion on thing and often showing tough love. I love this book.

This story is quite touching and very interesting. You realize how hard life was then for most poeple as it was the war, with the food rationing etc. The only problem about this book is that you might find it slightly boring, but I still really enjoyed reading it!
I would recommend this book to anyone, really, or from age 8+. READ IT - IT IS VERY INTERESTING AND GOOD!
And Jacky Daydream had all the answers to my questions; it had everything from birth to books! It told me all about how things were when Jacqueline Wilson was a child; it described her rooms and had chapters on her family, friends and teachers. It was like going through a time machine starting on the 17th December 1945 when she was born and seeing how she grew up in a flat with her parents, Biddy and Harry; and how Biddy kept her squeaky clean and their flat too, of course! And going right through to when Jacqueline Wilson and her parents went to live with her grandparents and how Hilda Ellen (her gran) told her stories of her own childhood. Poor Hilda Ellen had a very disrupted childhood, moving about a lot.
I read how Jacqueline Wilson loved dolls and got one every Christmas. I also read about her first day of school and those that followed. She made many friends and when she was 11 - like I am now - I almost cried for her poor friend, Christine's, tragic situation (her mum was dying).
Then there was Jacqueline Wilson's father, Harry, who could be sweet and gentle but could burst into fiery moods which Jacqueline Wilson hated; as well as her parents rowing.
I loved the fact that Jacqueline Wilson had imaginary friends and played imaginary games by herself and sometimes with her friends. And - of course - like any good writer, she loved books and two chapters were dedicated to her love of reading and the books she enjoyed.
At the end of each chapter Jacqueline Wilson would pose a question like:
In which of my books did one of my characters do such-and-such?
And then she would answer her question and include an extract from one of her other books and reveal some of her thoughts on that book. And I could see the connections that she had with some of her characters.
The Epilogue included some school reports and a quick review of JW's teenage years.
And a clever ending!
It must have been hard for JW to recall so much of her childhood with such colourful interest, but I think she did an excellent job of making it readable and so brought a writer I love to life, especially as she included photographs.

This is lovely read for children and adults who follow Jacqueline Wilson. It shows what life was like for children in the 1940's and how much time has changed since then.
I would strongly recommend this.
