Product description

Coming to TV soon – catch Sunset and Destiny on Sky Kids in February!

“I don’t know her, I don’t even know her name, and yet I don’t feel shy with her.”

Sunset lives a life of luxury. Her mum is a beautiful ex-model, her dad is a world-famous rock star and her little siblings are celebrities! But life on the red carpet is no compensation for arguing parents, media scrutiny, and having no real friends.

Destiny, on the other hand, lives on a rundown estate. She’s an only child with a sickly but devoted mum who constantly tells her she’s the daughter of a famous Rockstar.

When the two girls meet in unlikely circumstances, they find in each other something they’ve been missing all their lives.

“Topical, wise and, ultimately feel-good story from the mistress of the confessional genre.” – Frances Perkins

  40. Emster123
    on 5 February 2013

    I have just finished this book and loved it!! I thought it would be a bit hard understanding standing this book because it kept swapping characters each chapter and I might get a bit confused! But I defiantly didn’t find it with this book at all. The two main characters, Sunset and Destiny, were two completely different characters in the beginning and then in the middle they became very alike and close. I truly love this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves an exciting, dramatic and a bit of a sad book! But maybe for older readers though! X

    This book is about 2 very different girls, Destiny and Sunset. Destiny lives on a small estate in a tiny flat with her mother. Her life is the complete opposite of Sunset’s. Sunset lives with her model mum, her rockstar dad, her cute celebrity sister and her cute celebrity brother. The red carpet is like a home to her. But one day the 2 girls meet. Destiny spills an exciting secret she has known for years and her mum has constantly reminded her about. The girls share the same rich father and are long-distance sisters! As Sunset starts to soak it all in, she listens to her mum and dad fight, she wonders if she will ever have a happily ever after ending…

    I got little darling as a birthday present a few years ago, and I remember reading it, and thinking how great it was. And when ir read it for a second time, I thought I might have grown out of the story as the characters are younger than me, but I loved them all the same. I loved how the characters had two completely seperate lives, and how somehow they knew they had this amazing connection. But, of course, I won’t reveal the plot line, that would ruin this amazing book!

    This book is so unique. It has a story that has been featured in other books, portrayed in different ways of course but the same basic plot, yet Wilson has made it unique in its own way. It has well-written characters, well described settings and is brilliantly written. I highly recommend it, it is un-miss able and un-put-down able.

    In Little Darlings two girls both daughters of Danny Kilman, old rockstar live apart and write in their journals (They don’t live together). In Sunset’s journal she writes about a movie premiere with Danny and Danny. Destiny writes about her sick mum and her namesake song which she sings in a school concert. So why don’t you read as well but some poarts makes me alone and sad but i don’t what u think soi have a go by reading this book

  87. Book-Club-Review-Team
    on 29 March 2011

    I’ve read Little Darlings and I love it so much! I never knew that Destiny and Sunset would be half-sisters and I think that Jacqueline Wilson added a twist to Little Darlings. I love it! My least favourite character was Sunset’s mother, Suzy, because she was so cruel. My favourite characters were Claudia and Destiny. Destiny because she was looking after her mum and she’s got an amazing voice and she didn’t give up with her mum to look for her dad. Claudia because she looked after Sunset and Sunset’s sibilings when Suzy was in shock and when Suzy was meant to be looking after her own kids.

    I loved it!

    Like all Jaqueline Wilson books, Little Darlings is sure to impress! The story is told in turns, in each sister’s perspective every second chapter. Personally, I found Sunset a bit more interesting to read about, but I think this is because she was unique to JW’s characters, and Destiny wasn’t. This doesn’t make it a bad book, not at all! It is very true to life, and you can tell this is what Jaqueline Wilson sets out to do in her books.

    i loved this book. I borrowed it from the library. Jaquline wilson books ecpecially .

    My faveourite character is destiny and mum because they never give upand they just keep on trying to fing destiny’s father Danny Kilman. My Favourite part of the book is were destiny and mum spend ages lokking for danny kilman so destiny can meet her father. I would say this book is for older readers because it is a very complicated book to read because one chapter destiny is talking and the next sunset is talking. My Overall rating of this book would be one hundred and fifty percent out of one hundred percent because i love this book very much.

    This book was in the middle between like and okay because it’s not her best one. It was interesting to see how much of a difference there is between a rich child and a poorer child. It was nice to see how powerful a friendship can be.
