The Worst Thing About My Sister

Title: The worst thing about my sister
Aurthor: Jacqueline Wilson
Illustrated: Nick Sharratt

I would rate this book 3 and a half out of 5 stars.
I would say its for 9+ readers or maybe a little older.
And it is best suited for girls as its about sisters and most of Jacqueline Wilson's books are.

This is Jacqueline's new book and hasn't been out for long. This is the best Jacqueline Wilson book I have read yet! This book is about two average girls and thier relationship with each other as sister. The book makes you feel a mixture of emotions, happy, sad, funny. Once I started the book I could not put it down.

The only thing that spoils it for me is that on page 209 Melissa (the older sister) says "I think she's seriously retarded."
I am not happy that Jacqueline has wrote that in the book and I don't know why, because earlier in the book on page 121 there is a charector called Mrs Grinstead who looks after children with special needs, and also on page 247 Marty (Martina, the younger sister) thinks "I almost hoped that Melissa would have a little relapse." I also didn't like this. 
And thats why I've gave it 3 and a half stars.

But the ending is very sweet and if you read this book I hope you enjoy it <3

Indie Kidd

Title: Indie Kidd How to be good (ish)
Aurthor: Karen McCombie
Illustrated by: Lydia Monks

I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
I would say  its for 9+ readers or maybe a little younger.
 I feel this book is for the younger reader, and it is best suited for girls as most of Karen McCombie's books are.

There is a series of these books, and I think this is the first book in the series, i think there are 11 indie kidd books so far ( i think this is correct)

This book is about Indie trying to find her talent, she doesn't think she has one, so with the help of her friends she finds out what she is good (ish) at. This book is the one when Indie first meet's DIB (Dog In Black).
There are some lovely pictures in the book, which help you picture the story and make you smile.
 The reason i only gave this book 4 out of 5 stars is because I did find myself getting a little bored in places,but i read it through to the end and I'm glad I did as the ending is very sweet (but I won't tell you, because it would spoill it).

Lizzie Zipmouth


Title: Lizzie Zipmouth.
Author: Jacqueline Wilson.
Illustrated by: Nick Sharratt.

I'd give this book 5 out of 5 stars!!
And I'd recommend this book for ages 9+
and I'd highly recommend it for any Jacqueline Wilson fan!

I've really enjoyed this book. This is now one of my favourite book's by Jacqueline Wilson.
I love the relationship between Lizzie and her step-great gran because they get on so well <3 .
The ending is quite SHOCKING  to me (i won't tell you and spoil it, you'll have to read it to find out ). You do feel the emotions of the characters throughout the book aswell,which i really like, and I feel Jacqueline Wilson is especially good at this.
This is a great,clever and brilliant book and I'd read it over and over.
