The Bed and Breakfast Star

Nd I'm going to be a big star one day I do my best to cheer my family up but no one seems to l. I ve always been a big fan of Jacueline Wilson s work and have had her books on my shelf since I was a child I read them relentlessly when I was younger and one of the books I read over and over again was The Bed and Breakfast Star I recently picked this up again and read it now in my adulthood and still retain the same fond memories of reading them as I did when I was little Looking back in it now as an adult I realise how much of a groundbreaking writer she is touching on subjects that can be hard to broach to younger audiences such as poverty family struggles and disputes parents hitting their children hopping from council house to council house not knowing where you next meal will be coming from struggles with school young delinuents playing truant and underage smoking although I was glad to see Elsa didn t succumb to such peer pressure I didn t realise this when I was reading with a younger brain but now can see it s uite a harrowing story with an important message I remember I was always enamoured with Elsa s character Her fiery personality her endless affinity for jokes and her constant attempts to cheer up those around her when she and her family are faced with difficult times Glad I re read this book as an adult who is still very much loyal to one of her favourite childhood authors

    I’ve read this book before I’m a little ashamed to say lifted it furtively from my younger sisters bookcase because they weren’t really books for boys The narrative in The Bed and Breakfast Star is driven in the first person by Elsa with lots of I did’s and personal thoughts and feelings this child’s eye narration feels like a very intimate and personal account of her life nothing is left out for the readers sensitivities Reading
