Lola Rose non è un nome fantastico? Jayni se l'è scelto dopo che lei e suo fratello Kenny sono fuggiti con la madre nel cuore della notte per scappare da un padre violento. Ma ora Mamma ha vinto un sacco di soldi al Gratta e vinci! Ci saranno dolci a volontà per tutti, giacchini foderati di pelliccia rosa, spese pazze e tante, tante visite all'acquario per la gioia del piccolo Kenny. Splendido, no? Ma la pacchia non può durare per sempre. Piano piano i soldi finiscono, insieme con le certezze di Lola Rose: non le vanno giù né il fidanzato né il lavoro di sua madre. E poi, perché non piace ai ragazzi della sua nuova scuola? Loro tre sono veramente al sicuro dal padre? E quando la madre verrà ricoverata in ospedale, Lola Rose si troverà davanti alla più importante decisione della sua vita... Grintosa, ma anche commovente nella sua tenacia, Lola Rose assomiglia a Jacqueline Wilson: entrambe le "bambine che saltano gli ostacoli" si alleano contro le prove più dure della vita, senza mai perdere il brillante smalto della loro forza e freschezza. Età di lettura: da 11 anni.

Perhaps my love for this book is dumb, mainly because it was such a comfort to me when I first read it. I was eleven and had just come out of Saudi Arabia to England; I had few friends in England and thought we'd shortly go back to Saudi (we didn't). In some ways, we'd done our own runner, evacuatin Leggi tutto
Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson Why I decided to read this book: I was given this novel as a birthday present many years ago and I couldn’t remember if I had read it or not so I decided to give it a go. I had previously been a huge fan of Jacqueline Wilson novels in my younger years, and I can recall b Leggi tutto
This book focuses on a particularly difficult topic, even by Wilson standards. Domestic violence affects thousands of families, and it is captured sensitively in this book through the eyes of a young child. When Jayni, her brother and mum are forced to leave their house suddenly due to the fathers v Leggi tutto
Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge , based on the BBC's Big Read Poll of 2003. Yeah, okay. Something different to the dross that is usually aimed at teenagers, but I don't like the writing style or narration at all. Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | Etsy

It has literally been years since I read this novel! I was up in the attic the other day, and I found it in a bag along with a few other Jacqueline Wilson books. Up until the publishing of either 'Cookie' or 'My Sister Jodie', I'd read every Wilson book there was, and most multiple times. But since
Found at family home, read over one night and loved it all over again. A nostalgic, sad & happy preteen drama.

This was interesting. When I read the synopsis I was like "mmm, abusive dad, got it. Wait... cancer too? That seems a little bit much." And that's what it was. Too much. The author's prologue suggests that the book is mostly about the cancer, but that's not the case at all. And while Wilson did the
