Jack Myers – A close friend of Destiny, who was described as "Destiny's boyfriend" by Jack's elder brother. The dad leaves but a couple weeks later comes back and takes the kids out for the day with his new girlfriend. Seriously, what is it about children and babies that make them such an effectively terrifying trope when it comes to the horror genre? As it didn't come out until I was in secondary school, it didn't own the same meaning to me as ones such as Double Act or Tracy Beaker would.

In January 2022, it was announced a miniseries adaptation of the novel written by Nathan Bryon and Jonny Wright would air on 11 February on Sky Kids. As the novel progresses and more exciting events occur, we also obtain the POV of Detective Sergeant Joanna Harper who takes an unexpected interest in the potential abduction of her twins that Lauren initially reports to the police. Much as I'm reluctant to resort to book-marketing cliches, Little Darlings really feels like it could be the thriller of the summer; I've already witnessed some buzzing about it on social media. It was interesting to see how much of a difference there is between a rich child and a poorer child. Summary: A carefully-crafted and uncannily clever tale about a new mother's irrational (or perhaps not so irrational) panic for the safety of her two children.

Sunset's character was fairly developed; it's clear how her mum's constant nagging affected her confidence and I enjoyed reading the passages where she retreated into 'Wardrobe City' and found comfort in her imagination, and later channelled this creativity into songwriting.

Sunset, Sweetie and Ace all hate her but Suzy even more so as she is very protective of Danny and despises Lizzie very much. Angel is very confident, and while her morals are right, her bravery and fearsome temper may lead her to do things she later regrets. However, these encounters can easily be explained away by the postpartum depression Lauren is clearly experiencing. At one point I was freaked out enough to beg Matt to get out of bed to come downstairs with me to make crumpets at midnight because I couldn’t face going downstairs alone. It’s certainly entertaining on the surface; if you’re ever just looking for a quick thrill this does the job- unfortunately it just didn’t do any more than that for me.

Girls keeping their families going, girls trying to get away… Jacqueline Wilson’s written about them all! To me the sign of a good book is when I struggle to put it down and find myself mulling over it when not reading it. She has a very gentle and empathetic temperament, and wants her little Destiny to grow up with he best possible childhood.

After all that though, I am glad I did finish it otherwise I would have regretted it even though I didn't particularly enjoy it.One of the stories that sort of drives me batty is when the real person has been replaced with a fake one and no one knows the difference except the real person!

If there is a sequel to this book, I hope it addresses the neglect and abuse that these kids suffer from. DS Jo Harper reviews the report the next morning and something about the event pushes her to meet Lauren and to further investigate it. My Favourite part of the book is were destiny and mum spend ages lokking for danny kilman so destiny can meet her father. To make up for failing, Sunset finds out Destiny's address, using the Danny Kilman fan-site, and sends her a letter and her leather jacket. Quite a few of the chapters open with a selection of these tales to really help this theme cement in your mind and show just how creepy they are.In June 2002 Jacqueline was given an OBE for services to literacy in schools, and she was the Children’s Laureate from 2005-2007. She’s an only child with a sickly but devoted mum who constantly tells her she’s the daughter of a famous Rockstar. I read this in like mild curiosity after borrowing it from my younger siblings bookshelf cuz I had nothing else to read i read it in like one sitting in a few hours. The line between certainty and belief; the ambiguity of what's real and what's not; the murky business of trying to establish the truth; all of these elements make this story eerie and incredibly tense. Destiny's narration was very honest and you could clearly see how her mothers actions were affecting her.
