  • Title Bad Girls
  • Author Jacqueline Wilson
  • Year 1996
  • Genre Childrens

Shy, mild Mandy has been bullied at school for as long as she can remember. That's why she is delighted when cheeky, daring, full-of-fun Tanya picks her as a friend. Mum isn't happy - she thinks Tanya's a BAD GIRL and a bad influence on her daughter. But Mandy loves spending time with her brilliant new friend, and is sure Tanya can only get her out of trouble, not into it... or could she?


Jacqueline Wilson is unquestionably a genius - she can write book after book that is compelling for young and old, brilliantly and perfectly capturing the emotions, confusion and fragility of being a kid in the big, bad world. This one was great because it had that extra twist of Mandy’s saviour new friend also being a bit of a rogue, then what do you do? It ended on a bit of a cliffhanger really, but that just leaves your own imagination to do the rest of the work.

Rating: 3 / 5
