Description of this Book

This is a wonderfully written and engaging memoir of Jacqueline Wilson's life as a teenager - her problems with her family, first love, her school life and her friends. Read extracts from her real secret teenage diaries and the stories she wrote as a teenager, to build up a fascinating picture of a real teenager and her inner life. Covering issues as diverse as the songs she danced to and the way she created beehive hairdos to her troubled school life and her parents' problematic relationship, this work follows on from the massive success of Jacky Daydream , her first memoir. Written in Jacqueline's usual and inimitable style, this will be fascinating reading for her fans, and for anyone who's interested in life in the UK in the Fifties and Sixties.
