A great read for girls 9 and over, this book deals with the relationship of children and parents - one comes from a poor family; the other from a celebrity family. Both heroines have to make their way into the world and deal with issues pertinent to their age as they form a solid connection and use each other for strength and inspiration.

The book was a bit slow to start with but things pick up when Destiny and her mum camp outside Danny's home.

I enjoyed reading this book despite its abrupt ending. Soon as my daughter catches up, we'll have lots to talk about!

You can't go wrong with Jacqueline Wilson. She understands the human psyche so well that at times you feel you are reading about yourself!

This is my fourth tim reading this book! Yes, it is really interesting! JW has done a good job writing this book. My favourite character would be Destiny as she is a brilliant singer.she lives with her mum and they get along fine until she gets the chance of a lifetime being a television star! I definitely recommend to people who love JW!

This book is great! I highly recommend it to 11 year old girls like me as Destiny is 11 too! Must try! It can be a little confusing to read at first but you get the hang of it soon enough#

This is definitely one of my favourite books I've read by Jacqueline! I read it within a day since I found it hard to put it down. The ending felt a bit abrupt, but perhaps it was meant to. I don't know, maybe I was just so into the book that I didn't realize it was coming to an end :) Either way, it was very well written. Jacqueline is an expert at getting you sucked into the story. Definitely give it a try!

Destiny and Sunset are two very different girls living very different lives.
Surviving in a small flat with little money, Destiny and her mother have to make do with a scarce amount of food. Even so, they live happily on their own together and share their very special secret.
On the other hand, Sunset lives in luxury, with her famous rock star father, ex-model mother, adorable much-loved little sister Sweetie, and little pre-school brother Ace. They are a classic celebrity family, who are nearly always featured in magazines. Despite all the treats and gifts and fashionable clothes Sunset is supplied with, she does not live as happily as Destiny, and longs to just fit in.
The two girls create a wonderful friendship... after finding out that they are related...!

This is one of my favourite books by Jacqueline Wilson and I would recommend it to those who like to get stuck into a GOOD book about true life. Moving, easy to relate to, funny at times - it's just splendid!
A must read for Jacky fans.

"Little Darlings" is yet another Jacqueline Wilson masterpiece, suitable for girls aged 10-14.
Destiny is a cheerful girl with a tremendous voice. She is bouncy, lively and passionate - always optimistic. Destiny lives in an Estate with her single mother, who claims her daughter is the unknown child of rock star, Danny Kilman.
Sunset is Danny's known daughter: living in a luxurious mansion, being treated to lavish gifts - but she isn't quite happy. Sunset is timid, imaginative and comes up with song lyric very easily. She's not really sure if she fits in with her family; she isn't pretty like her supermodel mother, Susie, or her little sister, Sweetie, she isn't cute like her 3-year-old brother, Ace, and she certainly can't please a crowd like her father!
After Destiny's mother, Kate, gets them tickets to see the stars walk down the red carpet on a film premiere, she wonders if she could get to meet her real father. Unfortunately, Danny does not even notice them.
Kate and Destiny spend a crazy night and find a way to hitch-hike their way to the Kilman's grand house. Destiny and Sunset briefly interact and after discovering that she might have a sister, Sunset decides to interrogate her father.
Lots of twists and turns follow - including a present, a secret love and a friendship that could last forever.
