I like the author Jacqueline Wilson, do you?

I own nearly all of her books but my favourite is Best Friends.

Does anyone know when her next book is going to be published?

No but I have 2 books by her.

One is called The Cat Mummy and it's a pretty good book. I also have The Diamond Girls. Has anyone read it? It's REALLY good!

I've ordered Jacky Daydream and Starring Tracy Beaker off Amazon.com! They should be here by the end of the week.

I like The Dare Game by Jacqueline Wilson, it's funny!

I don't like her writing (sorry) :)

It just gets to me that so many of her characters / hero(ines) have broken families or dysfunctional lives... I know it's great to reassure lots of ppl that it is OK if you don't have a stable family life and two parents who live with you and love you ... but with J. Wilson it seems to be an obsession that implies there are a lot more "unstable" families than "stable" one.

I also get fed up that she doesn't use much interesting vocabulary in her books.

I prefer something like A Series of Unfortunate Events - at least you get to learn new words and what they mean while you are reading about the adventures of (yes, you guess it..) an "unstable" family of orphans and a cruel uncle :lol:

Now that you mention it....that's true.

(In all the books I've read.)

The Cat Mummy, the main character doesn't have a mum and in Diamond Girls, all the girls don't live with their dads...hmm...strange. I have the first A Series of Unfortunate Events book. I agree Tama Mum, the series is very educational and informative. I got a lot out of just the first book. <_<

My mom actually knows her. Though I barely get to see her because she is usually other places. Her books are Good. Just don't read them a lot.

Yes, the Cat Mummy is rather sad. But Verity gets a new kitten at the end called Baby. I like the illustrations on the first page of everyone's pets.

And in Double Act Ruby makes up with Garnet just before she leaves so that works out
well.

I love the new book Jacky Daydream by Jacqueline Wilson. It's her autobiography of her childhood.
