I’ve been a huge Jacqueline Wilson fan since I first read The Illustrated Mum and Girls in Love back in the late 90s. If like me you’re a fan of Jacqueline Wilson’s past history-based works such as the Hetty Feather series, Clover Moon, Opal Plumstead, or The Lottie Project, Wave Me Goodbye could be for you.

Why The latest book from former Children’s Laureate and award-winning best-seller Jacqueline Wilson, Wave Me Goodbye is an all-new story about bravery and friendship, set against a WWII backdrop – a first for Wilson.
September, 1939. As the Second World War begins, ten-year-old Shirley is sent away on a train with her schoolmates. She doesn’t know where she’s going, or what’s going to happen to her when she gets there. All she has been told is that she’s going on ‘a little holiday’.
Shirley is billeted in the country, with two boys from East End London, Kevin and Archie – and their experiences living in the strange, half-empty Red House, with the mysterious and reclusive Mrs Waverley, will change their lives for ever.
