Description

Shame about Nina and Daniel (both of whom I really liked) but at the same time, I couldn't see how Laura and their lives would fit together again after everything. Sent away to save them from shame, Laura meets girls just like herself, whose families have given up on them - and they become a family for each other at the most difficult time in all their lives.

This is set in an era that she was familiar with (her published journals were a great read) and tells the story of how young, unwed mothers were treated by society. This book also ended by talking about the topic of consent and adoption, in partnership with two relevant charities. As well as winning many awards for her books, including the Children’s Book of the Year, Jacqueline is a former Children’s Laureate, and in 2008 she was appointed a Dame.As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her! I found her writing to be just as engaging and well-paced as I did when I was a teenager, which surprised me. The story gripped me and I thoroughly enjoyed the journey Laura went through without having to think too hard. I found the time Laura spent in the house of expectant mothers okay, it felt a bit like reading about boarding school but also dealing with the realities of parents who had shamed them and boys who had let them down.

I thought Laura was a lot younger than she was (she is fourteen) because her thoughts about things and behaviours seem childish. Polly Crosby tells ReadingZone about her novel, This Tale is Forbidden (Scholastic), a fractured fairy tale set in a dystopian world. The second half of the novel introduces new characters all caught in the same situation and all thrown into the pain and turmoil of forced adoptions. However, it was good for Laura and I think Wilson did a great job of showing other not so great endings for other women in the book for us to believe that Laura’s could be one of the good ones.Notice to Internet Explorer users Server security: Please note Internet Explorer users with versions 9 and 10 now need to enable TLS 1.
