I try to get every girly girl to read this one because those four sisters are so real. Everybody’s favourite is Jo, the tomboy who wants to be a writer — Jacqueline Wilson

Deals with life’s big questions – love and death, war and peace, and ambition versus family responsibility – in a way that is inspiring and realistic. Use a hankie as a bookmark – tears are guaranteed ―
