Read full description of the books:
Vicky Angel is about a girl named Jade who loses her best friend Vicky in a car crash. It deals with the theme of bereavement, grief and guilt.
Jade's friend Vicky is an outgoing, spontaneous and fun-loving girl whilst Jade is very much the opposite and more like Vicky's sidekick. They have an argument which leads to Jade dying in a car crash. From then Vicky's ghost frequently visits Jade at school where she will not allow Jade to move on and make new friends. It is only when Jade visits a counsellor where she learns how to deal with Vicky. However, when Jade attends an inquest into the death of Vicky she is overcome with guilt. She runs out of the court and down the road where she is nearly ran over by car. Vicky's ghost reappears and saves her and explains to Jade that the accident was not her fault, freeing her from the guilt she had been feeling since her death. Vicky then grows angel wings and disappears into the sky, allowing to Jade to continue with her life.
Jacqueline Wilson was one of my favourite author's when I was at school. I remember reading 'The Suitcase Kid' as a class, at school and I believe that sparked my interest in reading the rest of her collection of books. She is reknowned for writing books which tackle a range of difficult themes such as mental illness, divorce, adoption and bereavement. I think she explores the themes quite well through the 'child friendly' and real to life experiences that a school child could possbily relate to. Her books are usually aimed at KS2 upwards.
