Girls In Love

Girls In Love

Summary

'Nadine has a boyfriend. I can't believe it! How come Nadine's got a boyfriend before me?'

Ellie, Nadine and Magda are three best friends who couldn't be more different - Ellie is artistic, Nadine is goth, and Magda is all glitz and glam - but they love each other all the same.

They're just starting Year Nine, and being a teenager certainly isn't easy. They've got a lot on their minds - mainly boys! When Nadine and Magda both get boyfriends, Ellie can't help feeling left out.

Before she can help herself, she starts spinning a web of lies she finds hard to stop...

From bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson, Girls in Love is a funny, frank take on friendship, problems and heartaches that older fans will adore.
