Jacqueline Wilson Feature

Another Jacqueline Wilson feature occasioned by publication of the second instalment of her memoirs, My secret Diary


...Two years ago she wrote the first instalment of her memoirs, Jacky Daydream, which covered her life up until the age of 11. The follow-up, My Secret Diary, has just come out and focuses on when she was 14. It's a typically quirky, heartwarming read, including scraps from old diaries about the clothes she used to wear, the rows in her home between her mother, Biddy, and her father, Harry, her schooldays, first romance and above all, her writerly ambitions and the books she devoured. "I didn't want to write a misery memoir," she says. "I think you're a slightly sad person if in late middle age you're still stamping your feet and saying it's not fair, my mum and dad didn't give me this."
