Jacqueline Wilson’s sequence of Victorian novels — Hetty Feather (HF, 2009), Sapphire Battersea (SB, 2011), Emerald Star (ES, 2012) and Diamond (D, 2013) — contains much that we associate with the ‘typical’ Wilson novel — feisty heroine, displaced children, an interest in social stigma and marginalised people — and yet the series differs from the rest of her work in several noteworthy ways, mainly in their historical settings (the 1880s and 90s), and in their sustained exploration of a child maturing into a young adult.
