The Lovereading4Kids comment

Yet again Jacqueline Wilson captures the childhood issues of growing up, both emotional and physical. Her characters and the friendships between each of them are brilliantly drawn and every child reading Girls in Tears will find a character they empathise with. Highly enjoyable. A marvellous read.


Girls in Tears by Jacqueline Wilson

As ever, things are not running so smoothly for the girls. Ellie's romance is on its last legs, thanks to a persistent boyfriend, Nadine is "in love" with a boy she met on the Internet and is planning to go and meet him despite the other girls' insistence that things may not be quite as they seem, and Magda's hamster has died, leaving her less than happy with her friends' response to her grief. Each of them is shedding tears (rivers of them, in fact) and none of them can quite get to grips with the idea that their all-time best mates seem to be so absorbed in their own problems that communication between them is fast breaking down...


No one writes about and for children on the verge of teenagedom quite like Wilson. Unique. Yorkshire Evening Post An easygoing, humorous tale. Publisher's Weekly A quick, enjoyable read, complete with British vernacular and humor. It will appeal to many girls facing relationship issues. School Library Journal
