Received from Jordanne as part of my birthday package. It's BBC #98.

From Amazon:
Girls in Love is the first title (followed by Girls Under Pressure) in a trilogy for older readers (young teens) by award-winning author Jacqueline Wilson. Already an immensely popular author of books for younger readers (Bad Girls, The Suitcase Kid and Double Act) with Girls in Love Jacqueline Wilson shows she's sure to be equally popular with girls in their early teens.

As well as the boyfriend problem, this hilariously entertaining novel touches on the deeper pains associated with the loss of a parent and coming to terms with a new step-parent. Ellie, Magda and Nadine are determined to explore the, as yet uncharted, country of the boyfriend. When best friend Nadine gets a boyfriend, Ellie finds herself saying that she's got one too. Trouble is, he's the too young, too nerdy and too ugly boy who fell in love with her during her boring holiday in Wales. But when Nadine's dishy boyfriend starts causing trouble we see just how important girlfriends are and just how lucky Ellie is to have found a boy who is really her friend. An amusing and delightful read by someone who clearly knows what she's writing about.

Journal Entry 2 by HoserLauren at Toronto, Ontario Canada on Monday, April 11, 2011
Ellie is just about to go in to Year 9 with her two best friends Nadine and Madga. While on her last summer vacation with her parents, she meets nerdy Dan, a funny but way too smart 12 year old (a whole year younger than Ellie) who wants to write Ellie even though they live far away.

When Ellie reunites with her friends on the first day of classes, one of them has a boyfriend and Ellie pretends that Dan is her boyfriend as well, even though she finds him too young and geeky for her tastes. She feels guilty and wants to take it back but can't get past her jealousy.

This is a cute British book, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the Georgia Nicolson series by Louise Rennison. This is listed as #98 on the BBC Top 100 and I cannot understand why. The book is nothing special, though I can understand why teenage girls might like it.
