Secrets Summary

Secrets by Jacqueline Wilson

India lives in a large, luxurious house with a mum she can't stand and a dad she adores, though he hasn't had much time for her recently. She seeks solace in her journal, which she keeps in sincere imitation of her heroine, Anne Frank. Treasure lives on the local council estate with her loving and capable grandmother. She is devoted to her nan but lives in fear of having to go back to live with her mother and violent stepfather. A chance meeting sparks a great friendship between the girls. And when Treasure has to run away to avoid her stepfather, India comes up with a hiding place inspired by her favourite writer. India hasn't got a real secret annexe like Anne Frank - but she has got a hidden attic . . .

Secrets Reviews

"Wilson's skilful way with dialogue and plot makes this a moving, funny and uplifting story about friendship" * Observer *
"Wilson captures the vulnerable, bolshy tone of young girls, and offers humour and honesty too" * Independent on Sunday *
"Jacqueline Wilson is refreshingly committed to fulfilling children's expectations, and this is her enduring strength. Secrets captures a truth of childhood: that life is full of secrets, partly because so much is unknown and unexplained" * Guardian *
"Another brilliant book by Jacqueline Wilson" * Scribbler *
