Dark Man Reading Books by Peter Lancett, Helen Bird

This title is part of a series of funny, light-hearted and easy to read stories for girls who want to read Jacqueline Wilson but can't. The books are designed to appeal to girls aged 10-14 with a reading age of 7-8 years. Each fast moving story is around 1200-1500 words in length, with tightly controlled vocabulary and contemporary black and white illustrations throughout to help readers engage and follow the narrative.Siti has four really good mates - Donna, Lu, Kelly and Rachel. They are so close that Siti calls them her sisters. In Party Time , Rachel goes to a party with new boy Wil and all of his mates. She feels like a bit of an outsider until one of the boys starts chatting her up and fetching her drinks. Before long the party's over, leaving Rachel horribly sick and Wil's mates in the trouble they deserve.
