Girls In Tears Book Review

Girls In Tears by Jacqueline Wilson.

Girls In Tears is the fourth book in the GIRLS quartet. It is about a girl called Ellie who tries to deal with the torture of being a teenager. Three things she hates about her life right now-

1) Her beloved boyfriend Russell stops loving her. He buys her a cheap little plastic ring, and then ignores her completely. He's starting to go off her, she can tell. Well, she doesn't blame him. Who'd want to be seen with a big fat ugly lump like her, let alone love a big fat ugly lump like her? She thought Russell, but he's obviously got another girlfriend.

2) Her best friends hate her. Nadine starts seeing this creep she met on the Internet. He says all these lovely stuff to Nadine, but Ellie knows he's a fake. Or is she actually jealous of Nadine? And Magda's just blatantly ignoring Ellie. But not only that, she does something much, much worse. Magda breaks Ellie's heart in two, with no help from Russell.

3) Her family's deserted her. Dad's got himself a student girlfriend, and he stays late every night with her. And he's so jealous of Anna, he hates to see her as such a success. Anna doesn't feel like a success though, she's got no support. She might as well quit. Eggs is being a nuisance and is doing the opposite to what people ask him to do, and now Ellie's having to take care of him as there's no time in either of her parent's lives. Sheesh, they haven't even got a lump of butter to eat.

So that's it, Ellie's life is ruined. She's waiting for the big apologies off everyone, but they're just not happening. Does she have to do everything?

I would rate this book 8/10 and would recommend it for people aged 10+.

so at the middle of the night Behan the dad is out they move to London in a little grubby old flat but it will have to do if they want to live and they all decide to change their name s and Jayne becomes the grown up and glamorous Lola rose , Kenny becomes the shark loving Kendall and Nikki becomes lady luck.
but life do sent go as planned because when the mum gets diagnosed with breast cancer there whole life gets turned upside down.
the day their mum gets put into hospital Lola decides to ring up there auntie Babara that theyhavet seen for quite some time so when  auntie Babara comes to the flat at midnight with loads of food they are a little bit hooey but they miss there mum SO much .
when there um comes out of hospital she goes home and when the kids come home from school they hear mum talking to someone and at first Lola rose thinks its Jake but then she starts to recognise the voice , its here DADS!!!
thy all play happy families for about 10 minuets then things start to get put of hand when the dad goes to tuck the mum up in bed and he finds a pair of blue boxer shorts and no one wants to say that it is Jake's the mums ex so because no one is telling him he starts to get really angry and goes to smack the mum but auntie Babara goes and protects mum and then he smashes a glass and tries to cut Babara with it but then she kicks him so he looses his balance and falls on the floor.
then they all shout at him to get out and he does slamming the door behind him then the front door even louder.
the mum has to take some medicine to make her feel better but she keeps on being sick and then she finds out that it really was cancer and she says that she is better off to die then let her children see her suffer.
when her mum has to go back to the hospital for more treatment.
Lola has a voice of doom in her head saying bad things about her mum and the voice of doom said if you stand in front of the shark tank fro 1 hour then your mum will be OK so Lola rose goes and does it and then the voice of doom goes away and a kind man at the aquarium gives Lola Rose a shark tooth and he said it will bring good luck and it did because the mum got better and they all went to live with auntie Barbara in the pub and they all live happily ever after.

i would rate third book a 10/10 because it feels like i am in the book with Lola Rose and her family.

you will have to have a box of tissues by the side of you because some of the book is really sad and some of it is really happy.
