Jodie is a major character in My Sister Jodie by Jacqueline Wilson. She is the older sister of the narrator Pearl.


Jodie is 13 years old, and is tall and slender. She has long straight hair that is naturally mouse, but she dyed it marmalade orange coloured with gold streaks. She wears it in a high ponytail and has a fringe she cut herself. She also has pierced ears, and has multiple piercings in her left ear. Jodie's clothes are mostly as little-girly as Pearl's, but she does have some red high heeled shoes that she bought when given an allowance for school shoes.

Jodie later dyed her hair black, but due to being dyed orange previously, it comes out purple. After this, their mum was furious when she saw, and forced Jodie to put her hair in plaits, as if an old fashioned style could counteract the purple.


Jodie is the opposite to her sister, Pearl; she is bold, brash, rebellious, loud and likes attention. She frequently annoys their mum, and cheeks a lot of the teachers at school. But she cares very much for Pearl, and has a soft spot for the younger pupils of the school.
