“Magda is tall and glamorous, Nadine is willowy and ‘gothic’ and Ellie, well, Ellie is just plain normal. The three girls have been best friends ‘forever’ but now Ellie is convinced she’s fat; Nadine wants to be a model; and Magda worries that her appearance is giving guys the wrong idea… They all long to change their looks and they’re all under pressure!”
This is the second title in Jacqueline Wilson’s Girls series, which is easier to understand if you read it second.
I got very frustrated with Ellie in this story because she believed that she was really fat. It was interesting to read about Zoe, and it was good that Ellie had such good friends to help her. My favourite scene was when Nadine and Ellie were at the modelling tryouts.
This is a really good book about friendship and growing up and I would recommend this book to girls aged 11+.
I reviewed the first one in the series here.
