Hi, Renata Bunny!
I love Kate Maryon's books! Have you read Liz Pichon's Tom Gates? They are great!

Try the Harry Potter books if you have not already read them as they are really good.

Tom Gates is awesome if you liked Diary of a Wimpy Kid you'll LOVE The World of Norm.

Also a suitable read for 8-10 year olds is the Badly Drawn Beth series.
Reply if you tried my suggestions and what you thought.

If you've read Jacquline Wilson's books why not try

Cathy Cassidy
Kate Maryon

They both write in a similar style to JW
Don't know where to start? try Cathy Cassidy's Chocolate Box series or Kate Maryon's book Shine.

This forum is for non Jacquline Wilson books.

Why not try the Emily Sparkes series it's funny and relatable I especially like Cloe Clarke she is so annoying but at the same time hilarious when she tells tall tales ( like that she knows Jamie Oliver)

I'd recommend it to all girls especially Jacquline Wilson and Dork Diaries fans.

So yeah READ THEM.

The Gossip: Tips

These are to make The Gossip easier and suitable for you all to use. Messages containing the following might not necessarily be deleted but they might be edited to make them appropriate:

  • Use a SPOILER alert! If you are giving away plots about any of Jacqueline’s books so other users who may not have read the book will know you are giving away some of the story. This is what the SPOILER alert is for. Think ‘By saying this, am I going to SPOIL the enjoyment of the book for people who haven’t read it?’ To add a spoiler alert just type – in CAPS to make it more impactful – SPOILER ALERT! At the start of your message!
  • Try not to post repetitive topics, for example: before starting a new topic, check if someone else has already started a similar one, you could join their chat.
  • Avoid typing rows and rows of emoticons or single letters or characters like exclamation marks – messages packed with these only clog up the system and we’ll probably delete them so they don’t block other messages
  • Stay on topic of other posted threads. Make sure you read what others have written and you are responding to that conversation. If you want to start a new topic, think about what you want to talk about and make sure you title your topic clearly.
  • Watch your sense of humour, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
  • Talking about sensitive subjects: We think it’s great that you feel you can post your dilemmas and give advice to each other. However, we won’t be allowed to post problems of a very serious nature. If you feel like you’re in trouble and have no-one or no-where to turn, please contact Childline who will be able to help you: 0800 1111
  • And finally, please be patient! Because we have to check every message for all of the above, and because so many of you are using The Gossip, sometimes it can take a while for your message to appear. If you’ve respected the above rules and guidelines then your message WILL appear eventually

Despite the above Tips and our vigilance, if you strongly feel that any particular post should not be on the board then please do email us at jacky@jacquelinewilson.co.uk.
