The fourth episode of Jacqueline Wilson's popular Girls quartet reaches a turbulent and friendship-affirming conclusion, with Ellie dating a new beau and her pals being put to the test.
Ellie's going ga-ga over boyfriend Russell, especially since he's given her a ring to wear and is constantly whispering sweet nothings in her ear. But when Magda and Nadine start keeping secrets and Russell enters an art competition with a drawing that looks like one of her creations, Ellie starts feeling like a lone wolf. Unfortunately, things get even chillier when Ellie spots Magda and Russell "snogging" at a party, and she winds up ditching them all for good -- that is, until Magda talks her into rescuing Nadine from a potentially dangerous date.
Will Ellie ever forgive Russell and Magda? Can her friendship with her two best friends ever be the same? Through Ellie's tears of sadness and joy, this winner of England's Children's Book of the Year Award is a page-turner that reveals why "girls cry when they quarrel with their friends" and why they "cry when everything ends happily ever after." A fast-paced read that fans of the first three books won't want to miss. Shana Taylor
