Tom Gates is about a boy who likes band practice, snacks and doodling. He hates annoying kids in his school, his sister and school. It is a fun read with lots of doodles. There is an order but the order doesn039;t really matter as there is no big spoilers. I would definitely recommend them.

by Renata Bunny at 1:41 pm Wed 7 Jun 2017 | Likes: 2

My favourite books are:
-A Murder Most Unladylike (the whole series)
-Frost Hollow Hall
-Harry Potter
-Serafina and the Black Cloak
-Cherry Crush
-WONDER!!!!!!!!!! (this is the BEST book in the world)
-Severed Heads Broken Hearts
-Lily Alone
-In Darkling Wood

if you haven039;t read any of these I can guarantee you will love them!! :);-)

I totally agree with you Renata bunny. Lots of girls in my class read Tom Gates and say it is really good. Though I haven`t read it I think I will some time soon. Though some books are aimed towards girls I don`t think that should stop boys from reading them.
Roald Dahl is always good and so is E.D Baker. The 13 story tree house books are also very good(the books go up in thirteens).

I also LOVE Jacqueline Wilson books!

Some other books you should try are:
The Secret Series: The Name of this Book is Secret; If You Are Reading This It Is Too Late; This Book is not Good For You; This isn039;t What it Looks Like; and You Have to Stop This. The author won039;t say his/her name so it is really mysterious!!!
Harry Potter Series (obviously)
The Hunger Games. Although I wouldn039;t recommend for under 10s because it is a bit serious.
The Twilight Series. Again I wouldn039;t recommend for under 10s because it is a bit sad although it has a good twist in one of the books.
Enid Blyton. Especiall

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.
