    Ive noticed some children have commeted things such as “I found this book was a bit old for me”. Personally, i loved this book, and i finished it in a day reading non-stop. It was interesting, and full of diffrent topics, i would recomend, a good buy. :D

    I think this book is definately for older readers especially as Jacqueline Wilson was 14 when she wrote this. I’m 12 and I think it was a might have been a bit too old for me. Four stars.
