Vicky è fondamentalmente egoista e prepotente, ma ha una personalità forte e molti a scuola vorrebbero averla come amica. Questo privilegio però è concesso solo a Jade, buona, semplice fino all'ingenuità e soprattutto totalmente sottomessa e dipendente. La morte improvvisa di Vicky non cambia le cose: Jade infatti si trova seguita e dominata da una sorta di strano fantasma (o angelo?), che la spinge a isolarsi dagli altri e a chiudersi in se stessa. Ci vorrà un lungo cammino di crescita e l'aiuto di un'adulta comprensiva perché Jade riesca a rielaborare il lutto, ad allontanare il fantasma di Vicky e a crescere, ad imparare a pensare con la propria testa. Età di lettura: da 8 anni.

Vicky Angel is about a girl named Jade who loses her best friend Vicky in a car crash. It deals with the theme of bereavement, grief and guilt. Jade's friend Vicky is an outgoing, spontaneous and fun-loving girl whilst Jade is very much the opposite and more like Vicky's sidekick. They have an argume Leggi tutto
Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge , based on the BBC's Big Read Poll of 2003. Children's books deal with death all the time, so this is no different. What is different is the way the characters deal with the grief brought on by death. It's written extremely simply and at times the Leggi tutto
Under normal circumstances, I don't know that I would ever have read Jacqueline Wilson. I didn't discover her during my childhood, and as an adult, I don't think this would really have become an author on my radar. Normal circumstances, however, do not take into consideration my extreme stubbornness Leggi tutto
Vicky Angel- Jacqueline Wilson. An engaging book written in the 20th Century about two ordinary girls, who are best friends and go to the same school. Jade and Vicky have been best friends since nursery even though they were very different in character. Now at secondary school Jade is still the quie Leggi tutto
Growing up I read my fair share of Jacqueline Wilson books but I can honestly say that this one was my favourite, the one that stuck with me many years after reading it. As with all of Wilson’s books it’s written in a way which easily engages the reader, being accessible to both the younger and olde Leggi tutto
I have Vicky Angel by my bed every night, on top of a stack of various books. I've read it about five times and still can never get tired of how fierce, daring, and cold-hearted Vicky Waters is, and how weak, puny, and troubled Jade Marshall is. I don't know the feeling of your best friend using you Leggi tutto
Fun fact: when I was 9 or 10 I won a short story competition judged by Jacqueline Wilson and received a signed hardback copy of Vicky Angel as a prize. Still, I do actually think this is the best Jackie W book ( The Illustrated Mum a close second). This is such a great tale of grief, toxic friendship, Leggi tutto
it is insane that i read this as a nine year old. literally a book about a girl whose best friend dies and becomes a VENGEFUL SPIRIT that POSSESSES HER. also it's very lesbian but that's just par for the jacqueline wilson course. would be four stars but the ending is so boring and rushed
So I'm not really the target group here and not keen on reading childrens' books in the first place, however, this was extremely disappointing. Flat and annyoing cardboard characters, terrible parental behaviour and an abrupt ending - it's not really a book I'd give my kids to read (not that I have
One of the more difficult topics Wilson tackles in this book, bereavement and the loss of a young life. All of her books focus on some challenging issue, but this is one which particularly stuck in my mind for some time after reading it. Vicky is bright, popular and everything her best friend Jade wi Leggi tutto
