Vicky Angel




A sensitive and imaginative story about a girl grieving for her best friend, from the hugely popular Jacqueline Wilson - and featuring a special introduction by the author.

'You look as if you've seen a ghost!'

Jade is so used to living in the shadow of Vicky, her loud, confident best friend, that when a tragic accident occurs, she can hardly believe that Vicky's no longer around. But Vicky's a sparky girl who's not going to let a small thing like being dead stop her from living life to the full! Whether Jade is in lessons, out running or tentatively trying to make new friends, Vicky is determined to make her presence felt . . .
