Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Prue and her sister, Grace, have been educated at home by their controlling, super-strict father all their lives. Forced to wear Mum's odd handmade garments and forbidden from reading teenage magazines, they know they're very different to 'normal' girls. But when Dad has a stroke and ends up in hospital, unable to move or speak, Prue suddenly discovers what it's like to have a little freedom.

Sent to a real school for the first time, Prue struggles to fit in. The only person she can talk to is her kindly, young, and handsome art teacher, Rax. They quickly bond, and Prue feels more and more drawn to him. As her feelings grow stronger, she begins to realise that he might feel the same way about her. But nothing could ever happen between them, could it?

fairly good

Would you try another book written by Jacqueline Wilson or narrated by Finty Williams?

I love Jacqueline Wilson and if your also a fan of hers than I suggest reading/listening to it, if you don't enjoy her so much than I would choose something else, it was read pretty well. They did voices, which is a bonus.

If you’ve listened to books by Jacqueline Wilson before, how does this one compare?

Jacqueline Wilson's other books are a lot better, definitely try another if you enjoy, or like the look of this, and if you don't try another one of hers their great.

Could you see Love Lessons being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

I can't see it being made into a successful one because it is for children 10 and above and I don't see people finding it that interesting.

Mixed Feelings

I listened to this story with my teenage daughter who is a long standing Jacqueline Wilson fan. The narration by Finty Williams is excellent and allowed the story to be a pleasurable listening experience for both of us. Love Lessons is a typical Jacqueline Wilson novel in that it deals with difficult life situations and emotions from a young person's viewpoint. Whereas this is commendable, neither of us enjoyed or appreciated the way in which the plot developed in this particular story. The gritty realism of a schoolgirl crush sadly descended into silly fantasy with the reciprocal feelings and behaviour of the teacher. I have mixed feelings about this title - overall it is very good but with a silly and disappointing ending.

Love lessons

Love lessons in an amazing book it makes you have so much empathy for Prudence. The only thing is it could of gone longer like Prudence and TOBY could have fallen in love with each other I don't know.

Good but..

I think it is good but the story can sometimes be uncomfortable to listen to, but my sister loves it.

I think this book is probably for young adults and teens, as it contains a bit of mature content.

Overall it is not bad .

👍🏼
