Katy Carr is a lively daredevil oldest sister in a big family She loves messing around outdoors climbing on the garage roof or up a tree cycling ska. TRIGGER WARNINGS Depression suicidal thoughts disability slurs fat phobia and fat shamingThis is a contemporary reimagining of Susan Coolidge's What Katy Did Because I haven't read the classic who's to blame for the problematic aspects of KatyThe author's note explains that in the original through prayer and looking after her siblings Katy walks again Jacueline Wilson rightly points out that's not a good message so she takes the story in her own directionIf only she'd done that earlier JW says that the events in the first half of her version mirror Coolidge's so I guess that's who to blame Katy's first 200 pages are filler inconseuential to the rest of the plot like vignettes And while I understand novels should introduce the character and her world before the plot catalyst 200 pages is far too much and should've been condensedSo who's to blame for the character of Dorry I wasn't prepared for the barrage of fat phobia and fat shaming Dorry is described as chubby and pudgy but most often he's referred to as greedy Pretty much everything he says is about food and I'm not even exaggerating His siblings read Dorry's diary and it's all about what he ate The kids think there're burglars downstairs and Dorry worries They'll steal the cakes I know he's only a side character but he's one note and his characterisation needs improvementAs for the novel's disability aspect it seems believable The awkwardness and embarrassment the anger and frustration and the depression it all rings true Katy's disability doesn't turn her into a saint but she learns a lot about herself her friends and her family particularly her stepmotherHowever the inclusion of two particular words is uestionable Katy uses the C word and claims she's only talking about herself not her fellow patients but the nurses rightfully say the word should never be used There's also the I word which isn't addressed as much but rather in a Katy's not an I word kind of way In the days of Metcards if you used one that was expired the I word would describe the ticket It's upsetting that in the novel the word is used to describe PEOPLE rather than thingsMy other word complaint is tomboy Some may claim it's not offensive but it still conforms to outdated notions of gender that outdoorsy active girls are tomboys as opposed to just being who they are girlsThen there's an action near the end that strikes me as extremely poor judgement Katy's PE teacher has been working with her on her ball skills and Katy wants to join in with the rest of the class playing games Mr Myers asks Katy if she could sit on the floor with her back to the wall if he helped her Katy agrees but then he offers Katy's wheelchair to classmates to try out NO Just plain NO You DON'T or at least you bloody well SHOULDN'T invite others to use a wheelchair without first obtaining permission from the wheelchair's regular user in this case Katy who doesn't call out Mr Myers on his shoddy behaviour Katy shouldn't have to call him out though because Mr Myers should have some basic common sense and decency Ugh this scene really bothers meJacueline Wilson probably means well with her contemporary reimagining of Susan Coolidge's classic but the execution still needs a lot of i

Katy Author Jacqueline WilsTeboarding swinging But her life changes in dramatic and unexpected ways after a serious accidentInspired by the classic novel What Katy Did Jacueli. This is based on a classic that I have not read What Katy Did so I cannot comment on that However this had all the hallmarks of Jacueline Wilson's writing which includes vivid description and strong empathetic characterisationJacueline Wilson's Katy is impulsive and bold moody and unforgiving Her first day of summer between elementary school and middle school which occurs somewhere close to the middle of the book is catastrophic I wasn't prepared for it I have never read anything like this not because it is uniue speculative fiction but because it is completely realistic and outside of my experience I read it to my daughter who is in third grade and I'm glad I did
