Sylvie e Miranda amano Carl. Ma Carl è innamorato di un'altra persona... Sylvie, fin da piccola, ha sempre pensato che avrebbe sposato Carl, il suo migliore amico, che conosce da tutta la vita. Ma con l'adolescenza le cose cambiano: scuola nuova, amici nuovi sembrano trasformare Carl in una persona che Sylvie non riconosce più. Perché lui preferisce passare tutto il tempo con il suo nuovo amico Paul? E perché durante il gioco della bottiglia Carl sceglie di dare il suo primo bacio alla bella e sofisticata Miranda invece che a lei? E cosi difficile crescere senza avere il cuore spezzato da amori irraggiungibili? Jacqueline Wilson tocca ancora una volta i delicati temi dei turbamenti adolescenziali e dell'identità sessuale con mano lieve e sensibile. E con un pizzico di umorismo, perché il primo amore non è solo lacrime e sospiri, è anche speranza e sorrisi del cuore.

So, Sylvie and Carl have always been best friends, with their own private fantasy world and Sylvie's Leggi tutto
I never ever thought I'd feel like this. I thought I'd just coast along somehow. I've always been careful...I felt so safe, you and me and our own private world. I didn't have a clue about what it's like to fall in love. It's frightening because it's so intense, it kind of takes you over. It's just
I love reading Jacqueline Wilson for the fact that she often makes me empathize with her teenaged protagonists in a way I find very real and true. In this case my empathy was with Carl, the best friend to Sylvie, the protagonist. Sylvie is pretty likeable but she is made to be almost too naïve when Leggi tutto
Still angry about Kiss because I LOVED Jacqueline Wilson growing up, I've read so many of her books (even now, my younger sisters sometimes bring home her newest books and I often end up reading them). I have the greatest respect for her writing, I think she's brilliant and super talented at getting Leggi tutto
I just read this without realizing I've already read this before until I got to a part about two thirds in that I recognized ... and yeah, as you may have figured out, I didn't enjoyed it that much seeing as I didn't even remember it haha.
This book has many nostalgic feelings about it because although I didn't read this particular book as a child; being 14 when this book came out, I had decided I was far too grown up to read 'children's books', I loved Jacqueline Wilson books throughout my childhood. Any one of her books fills me wit Leggi tutto

What happens when your BFF is the boy next door - the boy you're in love with - and that boy is in love with another boy at school? Sylvie and Carl's Glassworld seems to rip-off Bridge to Terebithia and The Secret Language , but that's a minor complaint. Far more important is the way Sylvie grows up Leggi tutto
