Jacqueline Wilson peoples her stories with teens and pre-teens who struggle with hopelessly imperfect lives; beloved and believable characters.

Jacqueline gave us a brief history of children’s diaries and asked why we keep them and what we fill them with. She spoke about lots of diaries including her own, your own, those of some of her characters and of course the most famous children’s diary in history -Anne Frank’s.
