    I craved to read a Jacqueline Wilson book, and this was so short I finished it in one sitting. I wish my primary school classes had been this kind!

    Jacqueline Wilson has not yet failed to impress me. This book is great, as it deals with many common issues in a child's life regarding family, crushes, disabilities and the general feeling that you can't do anything right. It is full of useful solutions which you can apply to real life too. This book is gripping and will keep you entertained. Though it may be short, you'll be able to read it over and over without getting bored.

Though it may be short, you'll be able to read it over and over without getting bored. There's some humour, some sadness, whilst still keeping reality in the pages. Wilson has once again addressed us children in a way we can all understand, and I'm sure after reading this, you'll wish there was a Worry Website for you! I would definitely recommend this book to people aged 6+ as it is engaging and child friendly, but had mentions of subjects that could be upsetting to younger children (e.g hitting people). On the whole, another thrilling Jacqueline Wilson tale for you to enjoy. Hope my review helped.

    Another JW re-read, which was a fun throwback! If I could list all of the books that inspired me to become a writer, The Worry Website is one that would be on the list. Set in a school, it follows a teacher called Mr Speed who one day, decides to create a website for his students to send in their worries anonymously. It doesn't go through every classmate in his class, but the stories were varied. I liked Natasha's story at the end the most. It follows lots of worries including a new stepmother, h Another JW re-read, which was a fun throwback!

    Someone recommended that I read some British YA novels and they recommended Jacqueline Wilson as the go-to author. This one is quite British! I enjoyed this one, I loved the teacher in this book and his creative approach to keeping his students as healthy as possible with a worry web site where they could remain anonymous and express their struggles. It reminded me of something by Konigsburg and that is a good thing! I will be reading more of Ms. Wilson's stuff and I will report back.

    This is a book of short stories based on the lives and worries of seven pupils in Mr Speeds junior class. Due to circle time being a bit embarrassing for particular students to talk about their feelings, Mr Speed came up with a brilliant idea called ‘The Worry Website’.

Due to circle time being a bit embarrassing for particular students to talk about their feelings, Mr Speed came up with a brilliant idea called ‘The Worry Website’. When each pupil was allowed their allocated time on the computer they were given the opportunity to write whatever they wanted onto the worry website and wait for the responses from their fellow classmates with advice and views on how best to deal with the problem or worry. This was totally anonymous so nobody knew whom each problem belonged to. All seven short stories spoke of real life problems faced by children today and Mr Speed acted like somewhat of a fairy godmother helping each child to get over their worries and fears and giving them back a sense of belonging which all children long for. There were some problems of course which Mr Speed could not fix like Samantha’s dad leaving her mum, but he could help her redirect her anger towards her dad into something positive such as digging and gardening. Jacqueline Wilson is an outstanding author and I have been a big fan of hers since the age of 10. This book in particular is one of my favourites, I love the way the characters all have their own individual stories and problems and the way they all interlink and come together in the end. Due to the style of the language and the context I would say that the book was aimed for pupils in years 5 and 6. It is a good book to add depth to class discussions and perhaps have a whole lesson dedicated to creative writing based on the book.

Based in Mr.Speed's class, the pupils in the class are provided with a website where they can post their worries anonymously and get advice from their class mates. The book focuses on the stories of six pupils in the class, their worries and their story. One of the great things about the book is that the characters are linked in a clever way. This book address problems children face on a daily basis, and being from the children's point of view allows us to see problems the way children perceive them. It's a good book for those children who have worries of their own similar to the characters in the book as it shows them they're not alone and their problems may not be as bad as they seem. I particularly liked Mr.Speed's character as he was like a fairy Godmother trying to help the children with their worries indirectly. He bought a lot of humour into the book. The illustrations by Nick Sharratt help to engage with the book as well as add humour. I would recommend this book for Yr2/3+ to read alone or in groups.

    This is a great book for any children who think their problems are too big to be solved. But more importantly, this book is a must read for any adults who think children’s worries are only about child related issues. It will give them massive insight into how children think and creative ways to solve their very real and sometimes heartrending problems. My favourite character in this story is Mr Speed because he is the type of teacher which every single school on the entire planet needs to have.

    I felt that this was a very good book aimed for a generation of kids online. One of the entries was actually written by a competition winner kid, but I didn't like it. Sorry. A lot of these stories were only bite-sized chunks but they were still really inventive and profound, so it's a good read for kids. Especially kids online, so basically all 21st century kids. My personal favourite stories were Holly, Samantha, Claire and William.

    This is a youngish junior fiction that might make for an interesting class discussion. Kids post what they are worried about anonymously and classmates respond anonymously with constructive advice or empathy. Could be a neat class project to engage in as well.

    I can't believe I forgot how freaking important this book is. Ultimately about a teacher whose care for his students empowers them to rise against their fears.

    The Worry Website focuses on the story of different pupils whom all use the school's worry website all about sharing your worries anonymously to get anonymous answers back of advice. There's quite normal day to day struggles people have like Holly whom worries about getting a step mum, then Steven who wants a girlfriend but doesn't know how to approach her. But also there's Natasha with a disability leaving her wheelchair and machine bound to speak through and she wants to fit in and make friends The Worry Website focuses on the story of different pupils whom all use the school's worry website all about sharing your worries anonymously to get anonymous answers back of advice.

But also there's Natasha with a disability leaving her wheelchair and machine bound to speak through and she wants to fit in and make friends that look past her disability while there are more stories in the book that are hard hitting too. Then there's Mr Speed whom set up the website for the class and it also allows him to get to help them all out with their worries easier than asking them. I liked that a teacher has such a helpful heart as none I know would do this idea! So while it may be a bit unrealistic, it should be a thing that happens in every school to help each unnecessary stress.

    I loved this book as a child but I don’t think I realised quite how important it was at the time. This is such an important book for younger readers as it highlights the types of problems and worries many young people have and shows that they’re not alone. As always from Jacqueline Wilson, a fun read with a great message.

    One "worry" It was all great except for the fact that we didn't get to really know more on Lisa or find out how her story ended. Even if it was sad,it would be nice to get to know a little more on her.

    The Worry Website is a collection of connected stories in which a teacher comes up with a way to address his students' worries, giving them a voice without judgment, and allowing them to respond to the worries of their fellow classmates.

    Deals with lots of common issues in a child's life, regarding family, crushes, disabilities and confidence. There may be some subjects that could be a little upsetting to children though.

    Read this book as a kid and I found it hilarious. Very rarely to I actually laugh out loud to a book, but this book made me cry with laughter during Greg's part.
