Jacqueline Wilson's recommended reads

Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild

This was my own favourite story when I was young. It’s about three adopted sisters, Pauline, Petrova and Posy who all go to stage school. Pauline wants to be an actress, Petrova wants to be a motor mechanic and Posy wants to be a ballet dancer. I’ve read it at least 10 times!

The Explorer by Katherine Rundell

This is an exciting compelling story about four children in a plane crash in the Amazon. The children seem so real you believe in them utterly. By the time you reach the end you’ll understand why the book has got a perfect title.

Do you speak chocolate? by Cas Lester

I love this very contemporary story about two girls making friends at school – though they don’t speak the same language. Chocolate proves a brilliant way of connecting! As in most friendships, there are hitches and misunderstandings – but there’s a very happy ending.
