General comments: I bought Lola Rose from a secondhand book store some time in August. I have been reading children’s books as a 20 year old to understand how adults read and receive children’s literature and so far, this personal project has been very interesting. As a part of the same project, I had also read Jacqueline Wilson’s The Illustrated Mum and I have come to greatly appreciate her literary works.
Anyway, so I open this copy of Lola Rose and on the first page it is signed, “Love, Jacqueline Wilson”. So obviously I freaked out and went online to Google her signature. And turns out that the signature on my copy is INDEED authentic and I had thus come to possess a signed copy of her book, albeit unwittingly.
