Summary

Being a sister isn't always easy ... but what's the very worst thing about your sister?

Marty and her sister Melissa couldn't be more different. Marty loves her Converse trainers, playing football, hiding in her secret den and helping her dad with his DIY. But Melissa loves Justin Bieber and all things pink, girly and pretty.

The sisters can manage to live together, despite their occasional scraps but then Mum tells them they have to share a room. For Marty, having to share her bunk beds and lose her private sanctuary turns out to be the very worst thing about having a sister. But the girls soon discover that being too close for comfort can have unexpected consequences, and when an accident happens, the sisters realise they are closer than they thought.

The worst thing about my sister

This is a brilliant book especially for children before bed. I would highly recommend this book for any young girls from probably around 9-12 year olds

The Worst Thing About My Sister

I would recommend this book to people who like David Walliams' books. I liked this book because it shows the different way of looking at relationships.

Monotone delivery

What did you like best about The Worst Thing About My Sister? What did you like least?

Could be quite believableThe expressionless delivery

What other book might you compare The Worst Thing About My Sister to, and why?

Don't know

Would you be willing to try another one of Jacqueline Wilson’s performances?

Book yes, performance no

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Yes, definitely

Any additional comments?

The delivery put me in mind of the BBC Just a Minute programme, where the participants are stringing the sentence out as long as possible to gain maximum time. Expression is not a consideration.

Jacqueline Wilson are one of those classics!

Being a slimer, I bascially have time to sit down and read a book but Jacqueline Wilson is one of those authors that you have to read as a growing child. It took me 2 years to finish the illustrated mum because i was so caught up right in the book. The book audio is fantastic, the story itself is brilliant and overall i can strongly say Jacquline Wilson is one of the greatest writers ever!!

Awesome and capturing and wonderful

I was not at home listening to The worst thing about my sister but was on Thor room or at Thor school having adventures with them! Truly one of Jacqueline Willson's best books
