Topical, contemporary and full of Jacqueline Wilson's verve and social realism, 'Bad Girls' will be unputdownable to her legions of fans. Mandy has been picked on at school for as long as she can remember. That's why she can't believe it when cheeky, daring, full of fun Tanya wants to be her friend. But Mum thinks Tanya's not a suitable friend at all and, when Mandy discovers Tanya's secret shoplifting, she realises she must choose between doing what Mum wants and keeping her new friend. Published simultaneously with her latest title, 'The Lottie Project' in hardback.
