Jacqueline Wilson Sharon Creech

Gr 5—8—Wilson knew from an early age that writing was her calling. Growing up in a turbulent home and dropping out of school at 16 pushed her to start writing for Jackie, a magazine for teenage girls. This well-written biography includes a quick-paced, fact-filled synopsis of her life. A dense introduction to Creech's career, books, and personal life creates a thorough biography. Detailed descriptions make this book interesting to the author's followers, but students unfamiliar with her work will find the book overwhelming and full of random pictures that create a confused organization. Only true fans will find the quotes, personal information, and publishing details of interest.—Rachel Artley, Watertown Elementary School, TN
