Mrs Mad's humble opinion
8/10 You are working hard. Well done.
What's it about?
What happens when Ellie becomes the one who the boy seems to fancy, not her good looking friends but plain old Ellie. What will she do?
What happens?
Out with Magda and Nadine and definitely not looking her best, Ellie attracts the attention of Russell. This is quite a shock to Ellie who doesn't know how to cope with this new situation. Russell seems really nice and likes art too, can things get any better? Unfortunately Ellie stays out far too late with her new bloke and is grounded by an irate father. So begins the latest exploits of the three friends, always landing themselves in trouble but staying together to help each other out!
Is it easy to read?
Easy to read and follow the story unravels with speed and keeps the reader enthralled.
Anything else?
I had a good laugh reading this, it brought back a lot of memories about school and growing up. Jacqueline Wilson clearly remembers it too and writes with effortless ease about those tender years where life can be a real challenge. As always the reality of her story writing shines through and the humour keeps flowing. I do hope there are more books for this age group to come I know I will look forward to reading them!

Ellie's dad says that she has to be home by nine o'clock, but while she's out with her best friends, Magda and Nadine, she meets a boy. But will Russell still be interested in Ellie when he finds out that she has to be in by nine?

I liked the book because it was funny. Ellie was giving her diary present. She kept on kissing this new boy. Her form teacher has the same name as mine. I like Magda and Nadine because they are cool. Ellie is always negative about herself but she should n More...
