10 facts about Jacqueline Wilson

We all have a favourite author right? In my opinion there is nothing better than snuggling by the fire and getting lost in a book. One of my favourite books to read is Sleepover by Jacqueline Wilson who is one of the best authors that I have found. If you like very realistic books that are are also quite girly then I think you will like her.
