In this brief blog, we will be talking about the worry website, content on the worry website, the purpose of the worry website, and more information about the worry website.

What is the book titled The Worry Website?

This kind of book is about a website where you can place your worries in whatever they may be. This kind of website was used by students to get themselves to reveal their worries in life.

This kind of plan was made by Mr Speed when sets up his super-cool new Worry Website. Holly, Greg, Natasha and the rest of the class think they’ve got shedloads of worries in this kind of book. 

But, as they find out, sometimes the best advice comes from the most unexpected place in their lives. Lots of the kids in Mr Speed’s class have something to worry about in this kind of book. 

From a new step mum to coping with Maths, everyone has their own private issues and it’s sometimes hard to discuss them even when you need advice at the time. So Mr Speed sets up this kind of website on the classroom computer. 

Anybody in the class can anonymously enter their worry and anyone else can type in advice to help out in this kind of website. A unique production for Jacqueline Wilson, coming from a story originally published in electronic form on the Internet and also containing a brilliant story by a 12-year-old fan who entered a competition to write a companion story to the author of this book.

Like the book talk about different types of worries, people in reality too suffer from different types of worries, depending on their life circumstances. For example, someone who had a tooth extraction worries about ‘When can I stop worrying about dry socket?
