What would make a REALLY interesting and fun forum? How can we start conversations?
What do we say? How do we say it? This is your space. We want YOU to decide!
I really like Wave Me Goodbye and all of the Hetty Feathers. Who else like those books? Also, The Worst Thing About My Sister is really good.
Like if your favourite author is Jacqueline Wilson.
skippy have you seen the hetty feather series on cbbc
they are so good
my top 5 JW books are
1. Lily alone
4. all the hetty feathers
5. Clean break
like if any of these are your favs
in kiss I'm sure carl is buy not gay because he kisses both boys and girls
what JW books would be better as films reply if you think you have one
Who loves 'The Worst Thing About My Sister'? Like if you do!
My favorite JW book at the moment is Little Stars, I'm a huge Hetty Feather fan
Has anyone read Hetty Feather's Christmas yet? I haven't but in a Jaqueline Wilson magazine that I bought, there was a little extract of the book that you could read. I haven't read that yet however, I am going to read it today.
I think Jacky should write more books about friendship because I liked best friends book.
Rose Harmony Treasure
Yeah I always get put by people who won't stop talking in class I just ignore them. But its not really about her sitting next to Selma that bugs me its that she thinks it is desperately unfair she can't pick where she sits.
Its interesting hearing two different sides to this.
Like if you can039;t wait for hetty feather039;s Christmas!

Without going into too much detail. Gay people are people who love people of the same gender. (Men loving men, women loving woman) I hope this answers your question. You might want to talk about it with a parent because they can tell you more.
Hetty Rainbow Cuddlepie
I know. I tried to say it in a constrictive way, I'm not that good at giving feedback. But to reply to your concerns (no offence) I think that Tina has the right not to sit with Selma but she overrated when she found out they mixed boys and girls and they couldn't pick where to sit. I'm not being rude but I think this site is for sharing opinions and we all have different opinions and I respect your view.
PS Isn't ten to early for a phone?
PPS I mean no offence to anyone here.
pixie I love the form and yes we are allowed to do it.
yay I cant wait to here the reply once you've got it tell me if its a yes or no!
Elsa Apple Treasure, Good Question. Kiss is my FAVE book, I think Carl is still in love with boys- well Paul, I think the Kiss to Sylvie is more of a friendly thing, though I kinda wish they ended up together! Although I sort of suspected Carl was gay, I don't really know why I just did
I agree with Retana! Some characters are quite irritating in the book! I think if Tina didn't want to sit by Selma she should have just sucked it up and moved on! I have to sit next to this really horrid girl in my class but I just ignore her! Like if you've ever sat next to someone irritating (or if you have read wave me goodbye! I recently finished it and was really moved!)
My top 5 JW books are
2. Wave Me Goodbye
3. My Sister Jodie
4. Opal Plumstead
5. Diamond Girls
You guys must read Girls In Love,it's an amazing book
Try it out
Rent a bunny your quite right but its kind of offensive to Jacky and its how she wants them to be and who are we to argue Jacky's a world famous writer were not Jacky's A adult were not and Tina has the right not to sit next to Selma and Tilly like every one is desperate for a phone ( I don't blame her I am to!) love from HRCP
Elsa what does ''gay'' mean?
Hetty Rainbow Cuddlepie

Hetty Rainbow Cuddlepie
Sent the letter!!!!!!!!! Hope they reply soon!!!!
pixie I would so add little darlings to my list but the thing is the only Hetty Feather book I have read is the extract to Hetty feathers Christmas. Oh and by the way you can get JW mag from Tesco if you live in England and if you don't then I have no idea.
I love you books Jackeline Wilson but I was wondering is carl gay in the book "kiss" because he kissed Paul and Sylvie. Did he only kiss Sylvie because she wanted him to or did he do it because he wasn't gay and he just liked her??
pixie I don't really know but at the same time I have a great idea! So go onto Jacky's fan mail and send to her dear Jaqueline Wilson me and my friend would like to do a JW book club. We were hoping that you could maybe put a book club on the JW website for us to run. so if its not to much trouble pixie could you maybe write the letter because my mum wont let me! Love from HRC:
Little Darlings should be turned into a film!
Hetty Rainbow Cuddlepie
I love those books too!But I'd add Little Darlings to the list too.IT ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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 email@example.com.
