Why she’s the borrowers’ favourite

Jacqueline Wilson’s star is definitely in the ascendency; this year she overtook Catherine Cookson as the most borrowed author from public libraries and has sold more than 15 million books. She had no fewer than four titles in the BBC’s recent Big Read. She talks to Jenni about why she loves writing for young people and reads from her new book The Diamond Girls.
