    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 guiltJade's friend Vicky is an outgoing spontaneous and fun loving girl whilst Jade is very much the opposite and like Vicky's sidekick They have an argument which leads to Jade dying in a car crash From then Vicky's ghost freuently 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 inuest 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 lifeJacueline 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 uite 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

    Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge based on the BBC's Big Read Poll of 2003Children's books deal with death all the time so this is no different What is different is the way the characters deal with the grief brought on by death It's written extremely simply and at times the protagonists' narrative was utterly annoying and devoid of anything particularly enlightening though what does one expect from a teenager really but it does offer up a different approach that I think at the time the book was published was not readily availableLess so now but children aren't much involved in deaths There are many stories of children growing up on the 60s through to the 80s and even the 90s where they aren't even told someone is dead particularly a parent and aren't taken to the funeral And then they aren't told properly and they aren't really involved in any kind of conversation Thankfully these days we aren't so afraid of conversation as we once were and this book was probably a pre cursor to that shift in dealing with death and childrenI'd hate to think that any adult gave this book to a kid of they suffered a loss thoughPerhaps it was left to the nanny to do thatBlog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | Etsy

    Under normal circumstances I don't know that I would ever have read Jacueline Wilson I didn't discover her during my childhood and as an adult I don't think this would really have become an author on my radar Normal circumstances however do not take into consideration my extreme stubbornness and the existence of the BBC's Big Read List Due to the two in conjunction I think this is my third Wilson book I have to say while they probably aren't something I would have sought out even as a child they're not badNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    Vicky Angel Jacueline Wilson An engaging book written in the 20th Century about two ordinary girls who are best friends and go to the same school Jade and Vicky have been best friends since nursery even though they were very different in character Now at secondary school Jade is still the uiet one who always agrees with Vicky who has a very strong character and is the decision maker of the two with a very strong character However a disagreement between the two friends results in a tragic accident and things instantly change for both of them when Vicky dies in a car accident Jade is left on her own But Vicky does not leave Jade alone and is determined to make her presence felt as a spirit Even though Jade is very upset lonely and shocked at the thought of losing Vicky when Vicky comes back for her she realizes that nothing can separate them and is back to her usual self in no time However even though Jade is enjoying Vicky's presence Vicky's demanding actions begin to interfere with Jades ordinary life and is also being noticed by friends teachers and her mum Jades teacher approaches her and asks her if she would like to receive further help from a counsellor to help her to overcome the constant presence of Vicky who she admits to seeing After difficult sessions with the counsellor Jade is told to try and block Vicky's presence out of her life otherwise she will start to cause damage in Jades life The Jade tries to block Vicky out the Vicky turns against Jade and tries to take control of her life such as persuading her to bunk off school Eventually Jade realizes that even though she is upset to have lost Vicky in order to be happy again she needs to block her out and to move on without her With the help of the counsellor Jade manages to block to Vicky out completely by leaving her when she wants and only seeing her when she wants this therefore helps Jade to move on and to carry on with her life This story was very touching and allows the reader to relate to the setting very easily mainly aimed at teenage girls the story explains the attachment involved in friendships alongside the importance of growing up and being able to let go when neededI enjoyed reading this book because the author helps you to pick a character which you can relate to as a person Additionally Jade's situation can easily be understood as she is feeling upset to have lost Vicky but then is happy when she is around which is a difficult position to be inI think this book can be best used as an independent reading book within the classroom as an effective and favorited author for teenagers Jacueline Wilson's books are enjoyable and can help teenagers to develop themselves and helps them to be able to understand certain situations which take place in their life

    Growing up I read my fair share of Jacueline Wilson books but I can honestly say that this one was my favourite the one that stuck with me many years after reading it As with all of Wilson’s books it’s written in a way which easily engages the reader being accessible to both the younger and older reader filled with the emotions necessary to get the reader really thinkingThis book tackles the issue of the death of Vicky and the issues which arise for her best friend following her death and reappearance as a ghost Filled with raw emotions it is not a read for someone prone to emotional moments unless they have a handy box of tissues at the ready in case tears start to spill over It is most certainly a book to remind us of what we have and the effect that death can have on a person – taking a realistic approach to grief despite the fictional aspect of Vicky being present in the book as a ghost

    Fun fact when I was 9 or 10 I won a short story competition judged by Jacueline Wilson and received a signed hardback copy of Vicky Angel as a prize Still I do actually think this is the best Jackie W book The Illustrated Mum a close secondThis is such a great tale of grief toxic friendship and self identity aimed at an age group that may not yet have the means of naming those things Jade's realisation that her best friend Vicky wasn't the great person she'd convinced herself she was and her guilt around the circumstances of Vicky's death are accurately portrayed as Vicky's ghost haunting her The ending in which Jade finally finds confidence in herself views the friendship realistically and begins to mourn in a healthier way made me shed a tear


  7. Rosie Rosie says:

    it is insane that i read this as a nine year old literally a book about a girl whose best friend dies and becomes a VENGEFUL SPIRIT that POSSESSES HERalso it's very lesbian but that's just par for the jacueline wilson course would be four stars but the ending is so boring and rushed

    I have Vicky Angel by my bed every night on top of a stack of various books I've read it about five times and still can never get tired of how fierce daring and cold hearted Vicky Waters is and how weak puny and troubled Jade Marshall is I don't know the feeling of your best friend using you like a doll making you do what she desires but I know it's difficult and heartbreaking Jade's life is falling apart; Fatboy Sam who is misunderstood to be keen on Vicky when he's just trying to get and close and help Jade her father and mother hanging onto their relationship with all their might just for their daughter and Vicky being the most selfish vain controlling devil to her own best friend How can Jade bear Vicky's snide comments on her choice of pudding friends and her cadaverous figure? Jade is too attached to Vicky to let go of the past forget the tragic car accident and confront the future where Vicky can't haunt her She should stop wasting away desperately calling out for Vicky and not get on with her life Overall fantastic writing descriptive feelings and the wonderful twisted plot It's a huge heart warming story in 171 pages

    So I'm not really the target group here and not keen on reading childrens' books in the first place however this was extremely disappointing Flat and annyoing cardboard characters terrible parental behaviour and an abrupt ending it's not really a book I'd give my kids to read not that I have any but well Maybe I had the wrong expectations though I thought this was some novel intended to help children overcoming grief instead it was like some person freeing theimselves from an abusive relationship Interesting topic but not for this book So nayWhy I read this in the first place? Goodreads recommended it to me saying it was similar to The Godfather So I got into this dangerous mix of silly and curious and bought this And am none the wiser what exactly the parallels are between Vicky and Vito or whomever remains the secrets of goodreads' logarithm


  10. Laura Laura says:

    One of the difficult topics Wilson tackles in this book bereavement and the loss of a young life All of her books focus on some challenging issue but this is one which particularly stuck in my mind for some time after reading itVicky is bright popular and everything her best friend Jade wishes she could be One horrible day Vicky is knocked down by a car and dies and naturally Jade is absolutely devastated until Vicky decides to pay her a visit as an angel that no one else can see or hear but her Whilst perhaps not entirely realistic this book shines a light on how a pre teen handles the death of another young person and the associating issues of the people who are left behind I enjoyed reading about the mischief Vicky now an angel and her friend Jade get up to such as their adventure exploring London A great read for older children and adolescents
