This book also ended by talking about the topic of consent and adoption, in partnership with two relevant charities.

Her prefab home is undoubtedly the nicest in their area, but still is in a street dubbed ‘Shantytown’ by her Grammar School classmates. The connection you feel with all of the characters is almost immediate and you can't help but feel your own heart break throughout the book. With hard working parents who are proud of her achievements, she still dreams of a life like Nina’s. As always Jaqueline has this innate ability to weave an uncomfortable topic into a story that can be understood and felt by all.The tiny illustrations that accompany the beginning of chapters remind readers the tale follows a young girl, as Laura’s advanced literacy enables readers to forget her youth. In efforts to stop this book review from turning into an essay, I’ll leave it there with a take home message. At only 14, still very naive and incredibly homesick, Laura meets other girls her mother would label "Rough," or "Tarts" or "Unsuitable," who in fact are caring, and friendly.

There has always been something so special and comforting about her writing that I think few other authors match.But to keep ourselves on our toes, we have a rule that author gender is alternated, girl-boy-girl-boy, and the continents always rotated (with occasional glitches). Laura’s life really illustrates the dangers of not explaining things to your child in an age-appropriate manner (her parents didn’t explain anything) but expecting them to be “chaste”. I have so many positive memories of reading her books as a child (and even rereading them as an adult) and I’m so excited to read a book set for young adults and one of a more adult and sensitive subject too. The book still had the cosines of Wilson's previous books, but obviously had its darker aspects to it as well. What follows is a well-paced, emotional and intermittently heartwarming journey, one which will teach the value of families and friendships look like, the importance of consent and a good sex education.
