    This is the follow on book from Jacqueline Wilsons first autobiography ‘Jacky Daydream’. They are both brilliant-and should be read ! This book is about JW’s teen years and just how different they are to ours now. This is a brilliant change to fiction and gives lots of facts and info in a griping, true story.

    i loved jacky’s secret diary because it was great to find out about her crush and her first boyfriend and stuff. but i would like to hear a bit more about what her life is like now. it would be great if she wrote a sequel or even a diary of what she does now online, to be updated every day , for all to read. i would deffinatly read it every day. i know it could be a blog. well thats all i have to say (13)lines, i know this is sposed to be a short revew.

    I loved this second edition to the books of Jacqueline Wilsons childhood as much as i loved the first, maybe even more, because Jacky was more my age in this book. i loved reading about how she lived in a daydream world, and it was so inspirational to see that although Jacqueline Wilson isn’t an amazing speller, she still manages to be a worldwide brill author. Loved it!!!! :)

    This book is non-fiction! It is an honest diary of Jacqueline Wilson’s teenage life. It is funny and interesting – how times have changed since then – Wilson tells us of all her problems and the books she is reading – she was such a bookworm- and about her everyday life. As it is a teenage diary and perfectly honest, i would recommend this book for girls 13+

    I love having diares, reading diares etc. I really would recommend this book to anyone who is willing to buy this book if you are like me. I like to have and read diares. I do rate this book 10 out of 10. So if you really want to buy this book and you dont have money its really worth begging your parents for just this ammount becuase I personaly think this is the cheapest you can get this book because I have been to WHS Smiths and the book costs over ten (10) pounds so for me it is a lot. Well for me and also for you readers it might me (for me it was) really cheap as obviously it was for me. Well the book is amazing and any of you who really do want to read it Do It its really worth:)
