It's not like the books!
28 November 2003 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I agree with another comment that was made about this series. It's quite good...but it should be exactly how it is in the books. In the books, Ellie is a plump, bespectacled frizzy haired average looking girl who we can all relate to. Yet in the TV show, Ellie is an attractive and thin popular girl. Eh? Magda is also different, and basically what they've done is they've taken all four of the 'Girls' series and merged it into one, chopping and changing details. Eggs doesn't exist, because Anna is just pregnant with him, and for some reason Ellie actually went out with Dan first, which so isn't what happens in the books. The modelling competition with Nadine somehow became a music video competition, and Magda...and I know this is going to sound like I'm a racist, when I'm really not at all, but in the TV series Magda is played by a black girl, whereas in the books she is described as white and blonde. I wonder why all these changes were made? The Character Anna also looks different to the way she is described in the book. I know I sound like I'm nit picking now but really I liked the books better! In the TV series is also skips out the entire storyline from 'Girls Under Pressure' in which Ellie develops an eating disorder. I think it would have been better to include and show this in the programme as it is an issue that is relevant to teenage girls. And another thing- we are meant to believe that these girls are in year 9..when they quite clearly look like 6th formers...Pur-lease. Year 9's are babies. These girls act way older than that, and I think that is partly Jaqueline Wilson's doing as she wrote the characters to act much older than they apparently are. To make it more believable they should either look much younger, or be described as much older, because it's just a bit annoying. I'm 16 years old and I can relate...so obviously it seems a bit gay that these girls are supposedly 13... Anyhoo...Now that I've rambled on and ridiculed it..it's quite good and interesting and a good way to spend half an hour.
