Product Description

Amazon Review

Jacqueline Wilson's magical talent for writing novels for children of all ages that can brighten, sadden and enlighten all at the same time is legendary. Midnight is a shining example of that gift and is an unforgettable story about friendship, adoration and sibling worship. Wilson's subjects are always close at heart, her characters lovably flawed, but her endings are reassuringly uplifting.

It is the arrival of the intoxicatingly popular Jasmine, the daughter of a famous actor, at Violet's school that has impacted most on her life of late. Forever in the spell of her controlling and mesmerising older brother Will, Violet needs something to change for her. Will has discovered a shocking secret about his past that is making his behaviour even more strange and dangerous. His dreaded games of Truth or Dare often leave Violet's nerves in tatters. Will is distant, but Jasmine seems genuinely interested in her and her love of fairies. They even both like Casper Dream--the author of several popular fairy novels.

But Violet can't keep Jasmine away from her house forever and when Will and Jasmine get together and apparently exclude Violet--she can think of only one person who can help her... so she sets off by herself to find her favourite author.

Wilson's characters are no doubt agonisingly created, but seem effortlessly real and engaging--no wonder they've been adored by over 10-million readers since she first began writing for taunted teens and younger readers. Midnight is perhaps a slightly more subtle novel than is usual, tackling lots of different, overlapping themes at once and even touching on her own life--as demonstrated by the influence of the writer in the story, Casper Dream. This is another winning read. (Recommended for ages 10 and over.) --John McLay

Review

When Jacqueline Wilson wrote Midnight and some of her other modern classics that have now been adapted for the stage, she could surely never have imagined that between adapter Vicky Ireland and Watershed Productions, her novels would come to life in such a special way. Targeted at young teen audiences, the creative skill with which they have interpreted Wilson's hugely successful stories gives this next generation of theatregoers high standards against which to compare future theatre visits... an amazing production. --The Stage

Balances the magical world of the imagination with the harsher realities of growing up in modern Britain... Never shies away from the dark and the difficult. --The Times

Vicky has adapted a handful of my books for the stage. I hope she works her magic on many more to come! --Jacqueline Wilson

I usually find it hard to find books that I read and like. I have tried classics but often put them down after only reading a chapter or two, that was why I was thrilled when I discovered Jacqueline Wilson's Midnight.
Midnight is about a lonely girl called Violet. She is inspired by her favourite author, Casper Dream who writes about faires. Violet is his number one fan and writes him a letter every night but never sends them. She is over the moon when the new girl, Jasmine takes a shine to her and decides to be her only friend apart from her mysterious, adopted brother Will. Violet thinks that Jasmine is a wonderful, pretty girl,Which she is but everything changes when Jasmine meets Will.
Like all Jacqueline Wilson's books I have read, Midnight covers lots of issues such as friendship, love, bullying and loyalty. I couldn't put Midnight down and because of this it only took me four nights to read (which is a record for me!) but it is one of those books which you can read again and again and never get sick of it. Out of every single book I have ever read in my life Midnight is definently one of the best. Obviously a must read!!!!

This is a great book. I loved reading it. I loved the words and the way it was written. I could read it over and over again and I would never get bored of it. In it there's a girl called Violet, who has hardly any friends, apart from two girls. They are only her friends because they fancy her older brother called Will. Then a new girl called Jasmine comes to school. They become best friends and have great times together until Jasmine comes over one day and they play Truth or Dare with Will. Jasmine and Will dare Violet to go and sit in the loft for ten minutes. When the timer goes off, she comes down and finds her best friend and her brother kissing in his room.
Terribly upset, she runs away to find someone to help her and make her wishes come true.

I first got this book when it first came out. I was seven years old, possibly eight. It didn't hold much appeal to me at the time, but as I got older, the book proved to have many interesting layers to look at.
The main plot is about Violet, a young teenager who is questioning her family life. She doesn't connect with her parents at all, but she adores her brother Will, although as of late, Will has learned that he is actually an adopted child, although he and Violet look alike. But Will is a very complicated character. He can be the best older brother in the world to Violet, but he can also be the most evil, and he finds it easy to control Violet at times, who, like her name, is a bit of a shrinking violet.
Then Jasmine appears on the scene. She's joining Violet's class. She's pretty, she's confident, and she and Violet are best friends almost instantly. But when Jasmine first sees Will, just as Violet is telling her about how they're not actually related, it's interest at first sight. Can Violet learn to stand up for herself with Jasmine's help, or is Will going to ruin it by having a hold over her best friend?
Violet's favourite books are fairy books by the artist Casper Dream. These play a huge part in the story. Violet has sewn the fairies in his books and hung them from the ceiling of her room. Late in the book, she makes Jasmine a fairy, although Jasmine secretly laughs at it. But the all-new introduction from Jacqueline says that she mirrored her three main characters with fairy characters - Will is the fairy changeling, replacing a beloved baby, Violet is the shy Violet Fairy, who is easily trampled upon, and Jasmine is an enchantress, with irresistible magic and beauty.

i've read all of jaqueline Wilson's books and this one, like the others is amazing. You can really imagine yourself inside the book, and you can identify each of the characters personalities clearly. i found i could read about how the characters gain responsibility and how they grow to act more maturely. i would definately recomend it more to girls than boys and for all people over 10. Well done Jaqueline! Yet another brilliant book! looking forward to the next!
