Read full description of the books:
A young girl Stella is feeling abandoned after her mum and step-dad dump her at a summer camp whilst they go off on honeymoon without her. She is angry, stubborn and will not enjoy herself. She struggles through a whole summer (even with boys hair- a tragic accident at the hairdressers) with horrible camp leaders who force her to do lots of camping activities she doesn’t want to do like swimming. Along the way she realises that camp isn’t that bad as she makes some new friends.
I really enjoyed the book, its perfect for young girls trying to fit into a new situation perhaps a new family or school. Jacqueline Wilson has done a good job of writing from the perspective of a angry young girl who feels everyone is against her and won’t understand. I really like the way she has gone into detail about things that most young girls would find important i.e. long princess hair, new felt tips, art, fashion and writing a magazine. I think this book would be ideal for girls in Key Stage 2 for either guided reading or independent reading.

Read information about the authorJacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first ‘novel’ when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time.
One of Jacqueline’s most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. This was also the first of her books to be illustrated by Nick Sharratt. Since then Jacqueline has been on countless awards shortlists and has gone on to win many awards. The Illustrated Mum won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Award, the 1999 Children’s Book of the Year at the British Book Awards and was also shortlisted for the 1999 Whitbread Children’s Book Award.
Double Act won the prestigious Smarties Medal and the Children’s Book Award as well as being highly commended for the Carnegie Medal. The Story of Tracy Beaker won the 2002 Blue Peter People’s Choice Award.
Jacqueline is one of the nation’s favourite authors, and her books are loved and cherished by young readers not only in the UK but all over the world. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total now stands at over 35 million!
In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children’s Laureate. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson.
