Best-selling Jacqueline Wilson understands perfectly how the needle sharp jealousy of sisters is matched only by the strength of their underlying affection. Marty and Melissa are not in the least little bit like each other; Marty is a tomboy and Melissa is as girlie as a girl can be. What on earth will happen when they have to share a bedroom? What looks like a disaster turns out surprisingly well as the girls learn just how important they are to one another – despite their differences!
Marty and her sister Melissa couldn't be more different. Marty loves her Converse trainers, playing football, hiding in her secret den and helping her dad with his DIY. But Melissa loves Justin Bieber and all things pink, girly and pretty. The sisters can manage to live together, despite their occasional scraps but then Mum tells them they have to share a room. For Marty, having to share her bunk beds and lose her private sanctuary turns out to be the very worst thing about having a sister. But the girls soon discover that being too close for comfort can have unexpected consequences, and when an accident happens, the sisters realise they are closer than they thought.
As always in Jacqueline Wilson's brilliant books, she gets right to the heart of all those things that kids love and hate and The Worst Thing About My Sister (Doubleday, hardback, GBP12.99) is full of fun, frolics and little pearls of wisdom. Here she focuses on that old family chestnut - sibling rivalry - and gives quarrelling sisters plenty of food for thought. -- Pam Norfolk Blackpool Gazette 20120220 All fans of Jacqueline Wilson's warm-hearted family stories are sure to enjoy this enjoyable tale.
