Jacqueline Wilson ✓ 7 Summary

On ‘a little holiday’Shirley is billeted in the country with two boys from East End London Kevin and Archie – and their experiences living in the strange half empty Red House with the mysterious and reclusive Mrs Waverley will change their li. This is classic Jacueline Wilson and a tribute to her continued appeal and talent as a storyteller even after all these years When I was a child I absolutely devoured each and every one of her books but this tailed off as I got older I'd tried to get into a couple of her recent endeavours Hetty Feather Clover Moon etc and hadn't had any luck getting sucked in I thought that perhaps this was due to them being set in the past even though one of my childhood favourites was The Lottie Project but I thoroughly enjoyed the WWII setting of Wave Me Goodbye The story is engaging and the writing familiar yet original It always surprises me how well Wilson manages to communicate the feelings of younger children; the characters are very relatable even now I'm 24 It's in no way inappropriate or unsuitable for its target audience but there are elements to the plot that only older readers will understand fully which spreads its appeal even Wilson is still a force to be reckoned with and an author I'd wholeheartedly recommend to young readers

Wave me goodbye is going to take its place among the best books of this type I thinkJacueline Wilson writes with humour insight compassion and understanding Her characters all are credible and engaging When Shirley’s mum says she’s going on holiday at first Shirley is excited – but then the reality of what kind of a holiday it will be hits home and she is by turns reluctant scared and angry about having to leave her mother in London But off she goes in her red patent leather shoes with her suitcase too heavy to manage because instead of packing one book she packed her whole library What a heroineHowever the reality of being billeted in a country village hits home when the residents are asked to select the kids they are willing to take in Of course there are kids than available beds and it all gets uite dramatic as Shirley and the two remaining – and unprepossessing – boys are virtually forced on to an unwilling and reclusive hostessI don’t want to give away the plot so will confine myself to saying that despite an ill advised escape complete with gun all turns out wellMany themes run through this excellent story but what develops very strongly is Shirley’s ability to understand the perspectives of others and to be aware of how circumstances can shape us
