    The third in the "Girls" series, as Ellie and her friends start exploring relationships. Wilson expertly tackles issues surrounding teenaged friendship when boys become involved! I recall much of this book emphasising issues surrounding consent and stranger danger, as the three friends go to a concert and decide to go off with some shady boys in a van they have only just met.I really enjoyed this book and re-read it many times as a young teen myself. I was upset when the series ended, although a fourth and final book was subsequently released some time later.

    Source: I own this book. Cost: Unknown Title:Girls Out Late Series:Girls #3 Author:Jacqueline Wilson Overall Rating:3 starsIn some ways, this is my favourite in the series.But in other ways, it's my least favourite. But I think it all comes down to the age thing. Reading this at the age it was intended for, I loved it, I thought Russell was so nice and I loved the idea of breaking Curfew. However, now, I just see Ellie as kind of stupid and boy obsessed, she's 14. It doesn't matter if you have a boyfriend or not, I went to an all girls school so maybe that's why I have no sympathy there. We just sort of didn't care about boys in our school, because there was none. I just didn't enjoy revisiting this one.

    My personal opinion...!!This book was probably the only book in the Girls series I wanted to finish and didn't feel disgusted... ( If you read Girls under pressure you might know what I mean )

    Oh God I literally do not like Ellie and I find her character so annoying. Thus, it was difficult to like the story itself. Personally did not enjoy this one.

    Another check mark on the BBC Top 200 list. I don’t recommend this title unless you enjoy stereotypical depictions of teen girls as vapid, mean, and irritating. I find Wilson’s depictions of much younger characters to be more sympathetic and she at least works some teachable moments into the story. In this one Wilson misses the opportunity several times (don’t let a guy fondle your chest an hour after meeting him, don’t follow your art teacher home and try to seduce him, etc) - instead her characters just make lots of bad choices, lie about them and act snotty. No thankee.

    I've read a few of Jacqueline Wilson's books by now, and I do recall quite liking Double Act and not disliking whatever the other one I read was - though nothing too special, she can write a very natural, realistic voice for a young girl. This book, however... wow no. See, to ME, it just wasn't that realistic - nor were any of the characters likable. I swapped it through because I'm more keen on sending out my books to good homes that I'll swap with almost anything that sounds halfway decent. (*cough*Sweet*cough* another disaster!) This didn't even make a quarter.First of all, I didn't like Ellie much. I didn't enjoy her voice at all - too boy-obsessed AND only 13. Come on, really? Really?? And then, she meets Russell - she's sketching him while he's sketching her in McDonald's. And he's in year 11 (so I assume 16), and he totally gets on the same bus as her and wants to walk her home, with a detour on the way to a park. Where they practically make out, after having known each other for all of an hour. I'm sorry, but it just read like he was coming on WAY too strongly. At one point he was about to grope her chest and Ellie was all thinking, do I want this? But then I *don't* want him to think I'm all uptight, so okay I'll let him go this far... and this could have totally turned into a cautionary tale about how It's Okay To Say No, but it didn't. Blah. Also, I can't buy a 13-year-old staying out until 11 and whining that her friends can stay out past midnight. THIRTEEN. I don't think her 9pm curfew is that bad at ALL for her age.And then Russell is a total douche, I'm sorry. I mean he throws a whiny hissy-fit about Ellie spending time with her girlfriends, like she dares to think they're more important than him. Magda's father bought their concert tickets ages before he invited her to the dance. He wants her to just ditch her friends and be rude to Magda's father. Pssht, douche.And then the ending was just crap and awful with the whole going in the sketchy van of the sketchy boys debacle... again, could have been a cautionary tale! And okay in that case it was a little, though of course nothing too bad happened. But ughhhh, those three girls were dreadful and shallow and so unbelievable as 13-year-olds. Or are kids really like that these days?! I refuse to believe it. But come on, the BSC were 13... and sure they weren't entirely that believable either, but at least they didn't behave like these three did!

    [Written on movie; apologies for any mistakes]Girls Out Late is the third instalment in Jacqueline Wilson's Girls series. I read this story back when I was 14, in 2012. I had already read Girls in Love and Girls Under Pressure and these were books that were helping me shape my life as I transgressed into teenage years. I was excited to read Girls Out Late and when my order came in at the library, I couldn't get there quick enough to pick it up. I devoured this in a mere hour or two, and read it twice in one sitting. This is a beautiful story. It shows young adults the dangers of lying to those close to them and about meeting strangers and it definitely helped me be a lot more careful in my teenage years and maybe inadvertently saved my life without my knowing. Wilson's writing kept me completely hooked the entire book - and the entire Girls series. I still remember it clear to this day. It's very simple, that's important to remember. This is for younger years, and the writing seems pretty simple thinking back on it now. One of the scenes later on in the book, tense and rather scary, still haunts me to this day and it always comes to mind when I pack my bag to go and meet people I've never met before. The characters in this are wonderful. You grow to love every single girl featured in the series, especially Ellie, the main character, from whose eyes we see all the events from. It's remarkably written, even simply, that allows us to imagine it happening, with us as the forefront of it all. I'd definitely recommend this to pretty much anyone. It's one of my favourite books, and I'm going to be buying this series for sure to keep for my lifetime.

    I've always enjoyed J. Wilson's writing as it's very light-hearted and almost soothing for someone dealing with words all the time in her every day life. I had read the entire Girls series when I was 13 and had very fond memories of it. I still do but I have one big problem with Russell's character. Pushy and almost oppressive are the main words I could use to describe him. To act like this kind of behaviour is okay from boys isn't something I feel comfortable with. Apart from that, I feel that the story can be relatable for any young girl and woman who sometimes feels out of place.

    i completely forgot how stupid this book is. i enjoyed the previous ones because they were relatable and taught some kind of lesson but this one was just plain stupid. i hated ellies relationship with russell and she was just acting completely weird with him. he seems like an extremely creepy guy and i didn't like him at all. every single one of the situations described in this book seemed a little over the top and and i kind of started disliking ellie and her way of thinking.

    This, I decided, was more of a middle school book than a high school book. The main characters are about 9th grade age, and it has a plot that seems typically middle-schoolish...drama and boyfriend/girlfriend troubles. There were a couple of times when I thought the plot might take a more realistic turn (high school) but it came out of the incidents without any complications. I thought it was too predictable.

    I revisited this book from my early teens to have a laugh at what I used to read. Not only do I think it's highly inappropriate for teens to believe its acceptable to arrive home at midnight at age 14 which I remember puzzling me greatly, I also think that Jacqueline's teens were far different to the ones of the girls described in the book. It's a cute read but completely unbelievable and found myself doing a giant eye roll throughout the evening.

    Her father's strict rules and imposed early curfew make it difficult for her to see her new boyfriend, so Ellie decides to get some help from her stepmother and friends in order to bend the rules and soon learns that the early curfew, as silly as it may seem, has its purpose.

    A cute, but honest and believable portrayal of young teenage girls trying to deal with boys, parents and school. Elly, Nadine and Magda often veer off the path and are led astray by boys and other kids their age, but the subject matter isn't too raunchy and is tasteful and humorous.

    The third book of the series and here we see Ellie find a love interest, her new boyfriend Russell and how she deals with the pressures and situations that come with being in a relationship. Another great book in the series.

    I've read a few books by Jacqueline Wilson now, mainly because they appear on the BBC big read list. This one gain looks at some of the troubles a teenage girl may face and I can see why these books would appeal to that age group, although they sometimes feel like they are written for a slightly younger audience then teenagers.

    In this latest installment in the English series about chubby Ellie, boy-crazy Magda, and elegant Nadine, a lighter issue is the focus of the plot: curfews. Ellie at last has a real boyfriend, but her desire to meet with him is stronger than the desire to get home on time, much to the frustration and worry of her father and young stepmother. A subplot of a crush on the new art teacher is sweet and easy to relate to.Woodson's engaging heroine is the everygirl equivalent to Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's Alice character, with a British accent and slightly less talk about bodily function. All slang is easily comprehended in context, eliminating the need for a glossary. Darling Ellie is both smarter and more PC than Georgia Nicholson, and there is humor and high drama here as well as fairly normal girls who just want to be loved.The attractive compact size, low price and catchy covers equal more bang for the buck - once your Alice fans get hold of these, you may need multiple copies. Other titles address anorexia and dating violence. Highly recommended for middle school and up collections.

    Another quick read, where the series picks up where it left off in the last book.Maga is still totally boy crazy, Nadine has that who emo thing going on and Ellie is there for her friends but still feeling very much fat and frumpy.Ellie gets her first boyfriend and gets the inevitable 'who me' when he wants to talk to her and not her friends. Although her friends don't seem so supportive in the beginning they are they when she needs them, and even help her in her rough patch.All the girls find themselves in trouble and it is only with Ellies quick thinking that get them out of it, however there are in trouble with their parents the next day.It has the inevitable growing up problems of wanting to be independent at south a young age, you feel like an adult and want to do all the adult things, however, you only find that maybe you were a little too young after all.I would so hate to be this age again!

    Dame Jacqueline Wilson (a very deserved title!) is, in my opinion, the best contemporary children's writer. She writes perfectly, in content, theme, style and accessibility for children from aged 6 to 13 (ish - of course this varies among children). She writes flawlessly for children, I could not find a single fault.She is never patronizing and introduces young people to important life issues such as love, poverty, friendship, adolescence, separated parents, illnesses and so much more, in a manner that is accessible and completely appropriate for young people. Children challenge themselves with their reading skills as the lexis and syntax are by no means 'easy' but are happy to do so as the plots and characters are so engaging.A fantastic writer, whom I am sure instilled my love of reading and fiction from a young age.The 'girls' series are brilliant for older girls, and Wilson really taps into what pre-adolescent girls feel. Fantastic.

    This is another thoroughly entertaining teen read from Jacqueline Wilson. This book dealt with a lot of a issues many teenagers face including curfews, having crushes on teachers, managing a boyfriend alongside friendships, taking risks and telling lies. I found this book quite funny compared to the others; particularly Ellie's relationship with Russell. Although I did find Russell to be very selfish and Ellie to easily forgive him. Overall, a very good read, dealing with a lot of issues teenage girls face. Would recommend this book to young teenagers especially as it's more relatable to them, although I think it's suitable for anyone aged 12 and over.
