Description

Jackie's writing style, although has evolved over the years, keeps a similar structure, such as a non traditional home life/family, characters being themselves, even though it may not appear to be the "norm". Not sure if it was just because it was a different style, with the move into fantasy, but it seemed less emotionally in depth and without the same really engaging world building I love with J. I was lucky enough to meet Jacqueline at an event earlier in the month and managed to get a signed copy of her new book Project Fairy.

Their flat is full of fairy ornaments, tiny fairy furniture and they've even got fairy lights in the toilet. Plus there is her mother's fascination with fairies which really doesn't suit our tomboy protagonist.The characters didn't feel overly filled-out or had full arcs, but in comparason the general world and the fairies felt the complete opposite, and that was great! As an adult, it only took me a couple hours to complete this book, but it has resparked my love for her books and I rushed today to borrow all of her teenage fiction that was available at my library. But the biggest surprise of all is a tiny thing that tumbles out of the pages of the book… A magical, captivating story about fairies, families and friendship from the brilliant, award-winning Jacqueline Wilson. In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children’s Laureate.

The reveal later down the line that Mab's parents were never married is an offhanded, whatever remark.In spite of the typical girl-on-girl hate with the school bullies, and with other girls, and Mab moving on to being friends with a boy, Micky, because, and I quote, "[. I think the fairies, who are not so sweet and saccharine like you see in other children's media, are intended to be real in 'Project Fairy'. and definitely the kind of book I would have loved to read as a child, filled with fairy magic and history and all the heartache and family angst you'd expect from JW.

JW's books have become so much more sensitive over the years, thinking from a different perspective to the books which perhaps most readers my age might remember. 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.I swore I wouldn't; that I was officially done after reading the crime against humanity, the abominable 'Opal Plumstead'. When we first see Robin's group of five-year-old friends, a girl and a boy want him for a boyfriend. I am well aware I am around two decades past her predominant target audience now (OW, that is depressing), and I shouldn't judge too harshly.
